Deep Underground with Raul Groom

Tuesday, April 27, 2004

Recently I've been running across a lot of "Time Capsule" stuff - things I would want to put into a time capsule to show people in 100, 200, 500 years exactly what this moment in history was all about.

The easiest stuff to spot is always the craven, the shameful and the ludicrous. That's why I do not hesitate to nominate David Brooks' column in the NYT today. This article - which strikes me as the sort of thing George Will might have written when he was 8 - bills itself as a call for seriousness. Could this possibly be satirized? I got it - how bout a line of whoopee cushions that fart out "Oh Be Serious!" when you sit on them.
