From the people who brought you . . .

As Peter observed in another context last Sunday, so many people have Ursula Nordstrom spinning in her grave that it must be like a blender in there. This won't help.

"This" like Facebook is blocked here at Dalton. Sigh. Will have to wait to view when I get home. (Would it be within the Newbery age-range, I wonder?)

Monica, they're publishing a Sex and the City spinoff for kids. I don't know how this kind of trend-chasing works--SATC was the hot thing years ago and the movie has already disappeared. What kids will care?

What took HC so long? I would have thought this would have been in the works months ago. Next: a clothing line.

In the realm of things that make me sick...
My kids went to a Bat Mitzvah last year for a girl named Lexi, and the theme of her party was Lex and the City.
Oy!

Can we "Just say no" like the sex ed commercials?

OMG! Agree! My TWENTY something friends think of that as an "old lady" movie (I'm 43.) Plus, don't they already have this? It's called Gossip Girl and it's awesome.

I always thought series like The Gossip Girl and The A-list were influenced by SATC--upperclass young women, materialism, urban settings, drinking and partying. So Bushnell may be too late. I wonder if teen readers won't see a YA SATC as adult castoffs.

Oh, Lookie here! Gawker Media make me smile somewhere every day!
