Appalling

6 Jul


Today the New York Times sunk to an all-time low.  It was brought to my attention that they actually included the following sentence in rock critic Jane Scott’s obituary:

“A Victrola is something like an iPod, only larger.”

Honestly, I can barely fathom this.  At first I thought it was a joke, but who jokes in an obituary?  And it’s the New York Times, not Highlights for Children!  What’s next?  RCA’s dog, Nipper,  listening to an iPod?  I can’t even write more.  It’s too horrifying.

Here’s “Victrola” by Veruca Salt.  Or maybe it’s called “Large iPod,”… I forget.
