Bobo in Paradise

aristocratsShorter David Brooks: Having built my entire career upon an edifice of gross sociological generalizations, I would like to take this opportunity to point out that these generalizations do not apply in any manner to my own family. My time-consuming and expensive commitment to my son's traveling baseball team does not originate in the soulless vacancy of upper middle class existence; rather, it has preserved his boyish nature while incubating a manly disposition that will serve him well as he gazes down upon his poorer and less talented social inferiors.
