The Devil Wears Hermès (He Bought It at the Caesars Palace Mall in Las Vegas)

Published: August 21, 2007

Dana Thomas has written a crisp, witty social history that’s as entertaining as it is informative. (more at The New York Times)


  1. Just checking in with your blog-saying hello...and perhaps an early Happy Birthday!?

  2. I guess I'll have to follow with a really late "thank you" :-)

    Thanks for the post and birthday wishes. You stick with me better than just about everyone in our old group here, and I appreciate it.

    Hopefully all is well with your family. It's pretty good here.

    Thing is, I just can’t any time to rest or do anything I want to do. Kevin’s car has been on the fritz forever and various family celebrations have taken up just about every weekend lately. I got to go to SouthPark with Mom very late Saturday, but that was for supplies for yet another family celebration that will pretty much take up my whole weekend next week.

    In any event, your continued friendship is appreciated, and I hope to get some rest after I get through with tax class (one more session) and yet another family celebration.
