The Latest Alternative to Vapid Conversation



First read about yet another whiz-bang electronic device sported by our increasingly shallow "educated class," Foursquare, as reported in (where else?) the New York Times.

Now read the between-the-lines account in the Onion.

The Times' story almost seems a parody of the Onion, especially the photo (above) but the Onion's, of course, is far closer to the mark: a foul-mouthed obituary for a dying medium.
