Actually, I think this deserves more than Quote of the Day — this is at least Quote of the Week, maybe of the month: Chris Lehmann in a Boston Phoenix article about the NYT’s recent series ‘Class Matters’:

Getting the New York Times to explain the real operation of social class in America is, at the end of the day, a lot like granting your parents exclusive license to explain sex to you: there are simply far too many conflicts that run far too deep to result in any reliable account of how the thing works.
