"I like squares."

I think I'm a square, although that's not for me to say. It must be said about you.
I think squares accomplish most everything notable in the world. The hipsters crib from the work the squares do, to achieve their ill-deserved notoriety. The squares invent the moldboard plow, turn the earth deeply, and feed the world with their crops. The hipsters later keep windowboxes full of plastic flowers. No one will remember Lady Gaga in a hundred years. My grandchildren will play Dave Brubeck records. -- Sippican Cottage: The Very Square Dance

A hundred years before that Beau Brummel was creating a new name in English fashion. Real Englishmen were in Spain creating a new fashion in defeated French armies.

Meh. The entertainment industry talks about itself - news at 11.
