Contemp Culture Stinks of Finks

Publishing legend, Tina Brown is full of surprises as she rebels against a straight-laced age.

From Tina Brown, Washington Post:

    Sex at the office used to be one of the things that made going to work worthwhile...
...but not anymore since a Boeing e-mail snoop caused the board to can the highly successful, 68-year-old CEO Harry Stonecipher for his lapse with a company executive who wasn't even in the same town.

We are in the Eggshell Era, in which everyone has to tiptoe around because there's a world of busybodies out there who are being paid to catch you out -- and a public that is slowly being trained to accept a culture of finks.

We're always under surveillance...paparazzi make small fortunes snapping glamour goddesses picking their noses....

No matter who you are, someone is ready and willing to rat you out. Even the rats themselves have to look over their shoulders... [and] Bloggers are the new Stasi.
