Cluelessness at the New York Times?

By April 5, 2004culture

Jim Kunstler is picking up steam at his new blog:

“The New York Times is rapidly becoming the supreme organ of cluelessness in our so-called culture, and its avatar is columnist David Brooks, who wrote a hymn to suburbia in this week’s Sunday Magazine (“Our Sprawling Supersize Suburbia”). Not just suburbia, actually, but the outer asteroid belts of the newest hyper suburbs, especially the ones far beyond even the olifactory influence of any real city or town, and most particularly the ones composed of the biggest McHouses.”

As I’ve said before, you may not agree with everything that Kunstler says, but you have to admit he is a swashbuckling critic and a great writer.


P.S. If you appreciate these kinds of observations, you might want to read this as well.
