the new york times has a story today about cuteness and yet they failed to interview me. with that kind of sloppy reporting it's no wonder they've had their troubles with jayson blair and judith miller.

this could be a description of me, though, sans the homelieness bit.

Cuteness is distinct from beauty, researchers say, emphasizing rounded over sculptured, soft over refined, clumsy over quick. Beauty attracts admiration and demands a pedestal; cuteness attracts affection and demands a lap. Beauty is rare and brutal, despoiled by a single pimple. Cuteness is commonplace and generous, content on occasion to cosegregate with homeliness.
