Last night my school held its annual Decades Dance. My friends and I, being seniors, were decked out in 80's garb - hideous electric blue eyes shadow and all - and danced the entire night. We had a blast. Of course, all that dancing left me completely wiped out. So when I woke up this morning and saw this article on The New York Times' website, I knew there was no way I could write a proper, impassioned response - at least not without lots and lots of coffee.
Instead, I am going to direct you to Saundra Mitchell's blog, where she posted fabulous response to Lipsyte's article. Go, Saundra!
