Mass, Mainstream Culture Is Dying

A moment of silence, please, for the imminent death of the old Mainstream Mass Culture.

Born sometime between the invention of baseball and the 1904 World’s Fair, it began experiencing violent headaches and seizures shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, then lapsed into a coma during the launch of MySpace.com.

There will be no survivors, except on select reruns of “Lost.” In lieu of flowers, friends may send checks to the “Bring Back Dan Rather and Tom Brokaw Emergency Fund.” (LA Times)
