This NY Times article (reg req’ed) about the current popularity of tan skin completely misses a big point. Maybe it’s not tan skin that’s in, but more obviously, it’s brown skin. That is, not white skin. Perhaps the rule of beauty isn’t skinny pale white people anymore but..um… skinny asian people. Go asian people.

I seem to read a lot of the Times. I like that paper. They always do things the right way. Want a link? fine. Portraits of Courage: their touching look at many of the wtc victims. Indefinitely archived, I think.
