A Stinky Bogus Trend Story

The New York Times Styles section strikes again.

(Continued from Page 1)

The first of many stinkers to encourage me to write this bogus trend piece was reader Levi Fishman. Thanks, Levi! Send your stink to slate.pressbox@gmail.com and take a whiff of mine on my Twitter feed. (E-mail may be quoted by name in "The Fray," Slate's readers' forum; in a future article; or elsewhere unless the writer stipulates otherwise. Permanent disclosure: Slate is owned by the Washington Post Co.)

Track my errors: This hand-built RSS feed will ring every time Slate runs a "Press Box" correction. For e-mail notification of errors in this specific column, type the word stink in the subject head of an e-mail message, and send it to slate.pressbox@gmail.com.
