Semi-random thoughts

  • I renewed my subscription to the NY Philharmonic for next season (and added some extra concerts). They will be playing a larger than normal number of my favorite pieces. This will be my 38th year as a subscriber.
  • I wonder how much less outrage there would be over Wall Street "bonuses" if they were just called "discretionary incentive compensation."
  • I just dropped the Patricia Field blog from my blogroll, due to her stupid defense of designer John Galliano, who has been accused of making racist and anti-Semitic statements to fellow patrons of a Paris cafĂ©. He has been fired by Christian Dior. And you won't find me shopping at her store, either.
