This Modern World

        At the Independent Women's Forum, a site I highly recommend, Charlotte Hays notes an interesting contrast between the past and today.

        It used to be, people trying to get money and fame made themselves out to be better than they are.  Lillian Hellman's Pentimento is the example Hays points out.  Now they make themselves out to be worse, as the James Frey story shows.  The cult of victimhood has spread wider than most of us realize.
