Kathryn, I just wrote a Super Bowl-related column where I touched on the halftime show, but I found it difficult to say anything about it without sounding like a kill-joy and a geezer. This is how Joel Achenbach of the Washington Post put it:
The Super Bowl is our day of national vulgarity. Everything about the event is over-the-top, most of all the halftime show. I kept thinking that Beyonce didn’t need to try so hard. She had me at hello. At several points it turned into a workout video.
I know, I know, I should go watch “Downton Abbey,” or just stick to my needlepoint. Maybe find a new recipe for rhubarb pie.
The one and only.
