The ever fashionable, pretty much use-free Tina Brown


In Salon, Tina Brown has given us another "inside" look into the world of Tina Brown, this time about all the rich media types who are so stressed out by stuff that all they can talk about is their prescriptions.


What puzzles me
most about these high-flying exposes is why Brown, who apparently wants us to see how
"grounded" she is, takes the trouble to hang out with the people she skewers. Is she just one of them?


Political action is better than medication and it yields a real sense of control and self-satisfaction. I
hope that Brown has the gumption to press these medicated power players to stop popping pills and
start applying whatever pressure they can for actual political change. So many people are more
powerless than they are; heaven help us if all they can think of to do is screw with their blood
chemistry.
