  1. The marketing success of diamond engagement rings is an ever-present reminder that you can fool too many of the people too much of the time. I wonder if the custom will diminish as gay marriages increase, since those couples don’t fit the ready script that the man must spend two months’ salary on a ring for the woman as the first step to marriage.

  2. Gary Taubes, author of “Why we get fat” would disagree; his research establishes that carbs are the culprit.

    Seth: I agree with Taubes that food matters. The point of the link was that Marian Nestle was about 60 years behind the times.
