I’m pretty sure I’m the last person on earth to read this excerpt from Kevin Roose’s new book, Young Money, but just in case in case you haven’t either, I’m passing it along. To me, what Roose reports is not at all shocking. Many of these men (and the few women) come from positions of immense privilege and universities where secret societies and embarrassing initiation rites are the norm. And while in this instance they come across as callous and insensitive and embarrassed, many of these individuals keep our country’s cultural institutions afloat as federal, state, and local funding evaporates. Just a thought.
