Well, I'm doing it again-

linking to one of Terry's posts:
Status Anxiety- revisited. (link)

Question: Didn't this used to be

called "keeping up with the Jone-

& didn't the people, who have
honed the gotta-have-the-
what-the-cost mania into an

almost comically predictable &
successful target group for ad
campaigns- ("Yeah, let's aim it
toward those aging boomers-
they'll buy anything- the higher
the $$$ the better! And let's tell
them it makes them look young-
er, too!")

Right- & 50's the new 20 :p

Back to the question: Didn't the
aging boomers used to refer
to folks years ago as being
"plastic" because they consi-
dered them so materialistic?

Correct me if I'm wrong, as I
do consider this an objective
observation of the facts- but is

this an example of irony, hypo-
crasy, or both?

It's pretty blatant- sorrowfully- as it could be a form of idolatry.

Of course, this is not for me to say.
