You Label Me, You Negate Me

from the Adidas vs. Nike story in the Times mag, a moniker for all of us: "Fastidious Eclectus -- the ''SoHo architect,'' Liedtke says, who craves hip, distinctive sneakers. (Adidas guidelines: ''age 15-35''; ''I think weirdness and confidence are sexy.'')" Not as brilliant a breakdown of the world as occurs in Stephenson/Bury's Interface ("Depression-haunted can stacker," "Trade School Metal Heads," e.g.), but still just fine with me.

You know about DINKs? Double Income, No Kids. So 90s. It's all about "cindies" now, Single Income Now Divorced. New targets! New! I love America. Seriously, I do.

I think weirdness and confidence are sexy, too. But, though I would never have expected to utter these words, God save us from taxonomy.
