Rich on Excess

Frank Rich on the “layers and layers of nonsense” that characterized our recent history (Some Things Don’t Change in Grover’s Corners):

“The once-lionized lifestyles of the rich and infamous were appallingly tacky. John Thain’s parchment trash can was merely the tip of the kitschy iceberg. The level of taste flaunted by America’s upper caste at the bubble’s height had less in common with the Medicis than, say, Uday and Qusay Hussein.”

  1. When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked
    on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a
    comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment.

    Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!
