Bloggy Brooklyn: Self-Absorbed Boomer

Self-Absorbed Boomer comes from Claude Scales. Its name is a reference to the noted self-absorbtion of some members of the Baby Boom Generation. Mr. Scales is actually an attorney, although you wouldn't guess it from his blog, except for the occasional reference to Lawrence Tribe.

One recent post compares an Austin-Healy 3000 to a Triumph TR6, both of which the blogger found parked in Brooklyn Heights. Of the aesthetics of the cars, Mr. Scales wrote, "I prefer the voluptuous curviness of the Healey and the MG to the angularity of the TR. As to whether I prefer the Healey or the MG, I'm still coming down on the side of the latter, largely out of agreement with Mies van der Rohe's esthetic principle: 'Less is more.'"
