Why is it acceptable to state what everybody thinks and present it as though it is not merely original, but also provocative? Are you a hipster who is also pro-Palestinian? Yes, this must be lonely. Or, again, the supposedly revolutionary fact that a tall, blonde, conventionally-attractive woman, really, the definition of conventionally-attractive, won a modeling contest. A victory for the everywoman indeed. The prize, however, goes to Philip Weiss for declaring, contrary to popular opinion, that middle-aged husbands have sexual thoughts about other/younger women. Weiss's ground-breaking discovery includes some equally courageous comments about how in Europe men can have mistresses and it's like fine and everything. Weiss gets extra points for making his a crossover piece that not only states the obvious but humiliates at least one member of his immediate family in the process.
