Brooks reveals himself
This op/ed from David Brooks really pissed me off. In it he basically complains about his Nationals season ticket location and the fact that some VIPs got better seats than him. He tries to pull his "I'm one of the little people" act, but I call bullshit on that one, David. Would Brooks have written this if the GM had given DB the VIP treatment because he liked Brooks's book? It's typical Republican neo-elitism - of which George Bush is the prototype... soak up all the benefits from your connections when it suits, make deals over cigars and handshakes... and when it doesn't go your way bitch and whine about the so-called 'liberal elite' and 'insiders'. Look in the mirror, David.

    Thanks, Colin, for sharing this fascinating article. I have seen products lately boasting about having "0 trans fats," and I've wondered what it all meant.
