Missed the Mark

By lex, on August 21st, 2011

I rather like Wired.com, including Noah Schactman’s military themed “Danger Room”. The online version of the magazine has managed to become successful through its edgy-hip-beholden-to-none-outsider vibe while avoiding the dread sobriquet of  ”sell out.”

But sometimes being on the outside means failing to understand what’s on the inside. In her “Ready, Aim, Attire” post, 20-something New Yorker Lena Grogan castigates the uniform of the Life Guards as “silly”, among others.


Go ahead, Lena: Say it to their faces.

We can’t all dress in black on black.
