New York Times Reminds Readers To Consider How They Are Entitled To Something

NEW YORK—Following the publication of a controversial article questioning the relationship between fame and success, the New York Times reminded its readers Tuesday that they are entitled to whatever they want. “So please, feel free to take a look around, and then come back to me and tell me what you think,” read an instruction in the over-the-top editorializing, acknowledging that the article was written in an arrogant, self-centered way and that it was shot with a triumphant smugness. “Keep in mind that we are all entitled to the attention and adulation that comes with being famous, and at this point in our lives, we don’t need to worry about being locked up in a cell for being so fucking rich.” At press time, the Times had added a note of advice for its readers, reminding them that they were entitled to everything they wanted.

Life After Graduation

I've been thinking a lot lately about how I was taken in by the allure of grad school. I'm concerned that some of my friends might be going through the same thing. I don't mean to be so judgmental, but sometimes I wonder what I thought I was doing when I accepted a full scholarship to Harvard. I don't know if I should blame my parents or the fact that some of my classmates were so talented that they were able to pull it off getting a university degree. I just don't think I was ready for that kind of attention.
