Anything Goes

Cole Porter was right. "In olden days a glimpse of stocking was looked at as something shocking, now heaven knows...Anything Goes." More than that marketing seems to know everything and nothing at the same time. They haven't a shred of decency at all. That we know, that we know.

So, today I was in the Wal-Mart, getting chewable Tylenol and two things of photocopy paper, and I walk past a candy display, seemingly innoccuous. Upon closer inspection, I noticed a product that was at once so, absolutely hip to popular culture, and so utterly without shame that I felt what I can only call the Postmodern Sublime.
