What is the world coming to? Everything is upside down. Working in retail at Crate and Barrel is considered an internship, as is being a doorman on the Upper East Side. Jeans cost upwards of $200. These two seemingly unrelated trends strike me as being somehow connected. What the "how" is in this "somehow" I am not sure, but I think it has something to do with extended childhood. Educated people work for nothing or next to it till their thirties and dress like teenagers (not to mention care about such things as designer jeans) well past middle age.
