Oh New York Times Style Section, you are so blithely ridiculous, it's nearly enviable: you publish a cheeky, whimsical article on how women may endure this economically difficult holiday season by dressing in flashy, metallic dresses with hemlines up to Here, gams v. the ghosts of gloom. The frocks all cost between three to nine hundred dollars (for those on a "budget," the article sniffs, one might try wrapping paper .. discount, if possible, one senses, or rummaged out of a dumpster). Because, surely, it is not our prodigious expenditures that have driven us to despair, but our dreary fashion choices. Because, no doubt, our debt woes can be repaired by incurring more of it even faster.
