David Brooks Makes a Good Point Today. People Are Too Busy Mocking Him to Notice.

There are a lot of people snarking at David Brooks today over this column of his for just one paragraph. This one:

Recently I took a friend with only a high school degree to lunch. Insensitively, I led her into a gourmet sandwich shop. Suddenly I saw her face freeze up as she was confronted with sandwiches named “Padrino” and “Pomodoro” and ingredients like soppressata, capicollo and a striata baguette. I quickly asked her if she wanted to go somewhere else and she anxiously nodded yes and we ate Mexican.
