"J.C. Penney has broken free of its suburban parking area to invade Herald Square, and the most frequent question on New York’s collective lips seems to be: Why?"That is the starting line for the article, but it gets so much better. I got a kick out of reading this in the New York Times, read it! I already think Macy's is bad enough with those wooden elevators that should have been renovated before I was born. And now JCP lands in Manhattan, reassuring Macy's its okay to be here (although its really not).
Moving on: Fashion Meets Finance
It’s a social get-together for women in fashion and men in finance. Kind of like the (fashionable) Beauty & the (rich) Geek. Makes sense in theory, but oh please, really?
This reminds me of the silly but entertaining DABA blog I used to read earlier this year. I mean I do prefer guys in the finance field more than the doctor types just because of the personality (i tend to generalize that finance guys are more alpha-male, assertive, and social than guys in med school - i am waiting to be proven wrong), but FmF is just so tacky.
Let's all date chefs - how about Fashion Meets Food? Already sounds better to me.
