Heffernan on online ads: "An ad that keeps telling you how unobtrusive it is like a friend whose greatest virtue is that she leaves you alone. Her absence might be appreciated, but it doesn't make her much of a friend."

Oh, jeez, more absinthe-like holier than thou pontificating from The New York Times -- it's like these authors never learned that their forced efforts at sophisticated analogies (which got them A's in their Ivy League English courses) are just plain old tiresome. More Abu Ghuraib stories and ads for $5 million co-ops in the Sunday magazine -- that's our Grey Lady today.
