I never thought I’d see the day when the Atlantic advocated racist generalizations. Actually, it’s the white guys who never seem to wash their hands in the bathroom. Generally the Caucasians about to broker a deal, the suits fond of the handshake. People like Cullen Murphy. Scary shit really, but all it takes is hanging out in a fancy-schmancy men’s room for an hour and keeping track of who doesn’t wash their hands.
Oh, and Happy New Year!
[8/8/05 UPDATE: Now of course, these things don’t come as much of a surprise to me anymore. But I’m still very much annoyed that highbrow to middlebrow magazines still use language to voice casual generalizations.]
