Tom Oxford on Breiteneicher. Perhaps what we have is a clash between the culture of nobless oblige and Candidia Cruikshanks Entrepreneurs have their uses in a commericial society, but most I have met lack breeding, taste, and culture. Since they are money motivated, not paying them to sit on boards is a good thing, since it leaves seats open for the old money, which has been filtered through good prep schools, followed by Harvard, Yale, or Princeton, as with Joe & Co. A good liberal arts education filters the vulgarity from the sucessful shopkeeper's son. A mere, unrefined entrepreneur has no claims to the larger vision of stewardship required for entrance into the upper classes who govern through interlocking boards, at least in proper cities, like Boston. We do not serve on boards for filthy lucre. Don't you agree?
Shopping as ecstatic moment. Kairos in and of the mall. It is about the nuptials of St. Paul and Candidia Cruikshanks. "It is all about you, Eve. Have an apple on me And, grab one for Adam too." Via AKMA. "Come on over," says Forth & Towne hailing Good Christians to their moral doom. "Indulge!" Under "Terms and Conditions," better read the fine Satanic print. Smart Shoppers may go to hell, but not in a frumpy old frock.
