A statistically improbable polymath's views on politics and culture.

From the New York Times's Style Section, a list of twenty things you can do to "add color to your life". At first I thought they were just the usual rich-girl-without-sense-of-reality suggestions when I saw this and stopped dead in my tracks:

10. Stop oohing over Richard Meier's white boxes and start aahing over Ricardo Legorreta's brilliantly colored constructions.

I live in a Legorreta "brilliantly colored construction". It's orange, pink, and purple. You wanna see? As a critic pointed out, "It's Chicago... but the wrong Chicago."
Don't the couple in front of the Barbie Dream Dorm look exactly like Barbie and Ken? And don't be fooled by the sandstone color of the brick in the rendering. It's orange.
