I happened to read Daisy Miller (Henry James) last night and upon reflection, I couldn't help but compare the title character to Britney Spears. We are Winterbourne and "society." Collectively and individually we should, as The Egalitarian Bookworm urges, look to ourselves and take some responsibility for telling a teenage Britney: If you're sexy enough, we'll buy your records. If you're controversial enough, we'll buy magazines that feature you. But don't get too sexy or too controversial (or too "fat") or you will suffer the consequences.
