Here is a jaw-dropping story that perfectly captures the New York Times view of the world. It’s an appreciation of an educated and accomplished 70-year-old woman who, three years ago, decided she was missing out on life, and decided to sleep with as many men as she could in the time she had left. After living unhappily for years, Jane Juska, the Septuagenarian Sexpot, decided to remake herself. “It took years of psychoanalysis, dieting and exercise to take control of herself again, shaking off the lingering effects of a Puritanical small-town Ohio childhood in the process.”
Having come back to the Times version of reality, Jane became — what’s the word? — a slut. She’s decided that so many women focus on their grandchildren to take their minds off the fact that they haven’t done anything (in her view) with their lives. And a tramp’s life has been a pleasant surprise to Jane: “I had no hope of it turning out to be anything like this,” she said. “I expected to be murdered, or made sad at the very least.”
Murdered? How nice for Jane that she’s decided to live like a whore, but hasn’t (yet) died like one. Go get ‘em, girlfriend! The Times loves ya! (By the way, readers, you can write me now at firstname.lastname@example.org).
