Try Looking Through the Other End of the Telescope, David 

Going through some of the links on the far left side of the page, and discovered an interesting post over at K Marx The Spot. Is there anything more embarassing than when a New York Times columnist speculates about the culture of people residing outside of Manhatten? In this instance, David Brooks believes that, after a courageous foray into the world of pop music, he has discovered a new phenomenon with significant social implications, women singing about failed relationships and no good men. Apparently, Brooks has never heard of The Supremes, Loretta Lynn or Tammy Wynette, much less Tanya Tucker. Do people really pay extra to access his column through TimesSelect?
