I don't like to think I'm becoming one of those irritable old people, but I was struck by two short features in the Sunday Styles section this weekend: A Q&A
with 15-year-old Hunger Games
actress Isabelle Fuhrman, who burbles about her beauty regimen ("I love vanilla mint!") and offers such timeless shopping advice as "H & M is great for trendy, reasonably priced items," and the "What I Wore" column featuring 12-year-old Kiernan Shipka
, who plays Sally Draper on Mad Men.
Don't get me wrong—I believe that children are our future—but is the New York Times
trying to compete with Teen Vogue?
I wasn't aware the kids these days even looked at traditional media. Please let me know—I'll be at home feeding my cats and yelling at kids to get off my lawn.
