Cambridge Tales

I was in Cambridge, Mass., this weekend for my wife’s family Christmas

party. Yes, there are still people in Cambridge who celebrate Christmas.

That being said, the anti-Bush sentiments are as thick as the Christmas

shoppers on Mass. Ave.

I was browsing in the Harvard Coop, when what to my wondering eyes should

appear, but a stack of Legacys.

I can not report how they were selling, there in the heart of darkness. I

can report that they were wedged between “Howard Dean In This Own Words”

and “Making Dough: The 12 Secret Ingredients of Krispy Kreme’s Sweet

Success.” What conclusion should be drawn from such marketplace

positioning, I can not say.
