Ben Stein Watch: November 25, 2007

Ben Stein’s NYT column is called "Everybody’s Business". Today

he uses all of its 1,150 words to eulogize a Hollywood restaurant about which

Citysearch says

that "larger-than-life prices make it a ticket few can afford". He

also manages to drop no fewer than 25 different names ("I renewed a friendship

with Sly [Stallone] there that had lapsed for 30 years"). But really all

you need to know is encapsulated in this:

Some writers and makeup artists and sound men and gaffers and electricians

might lose their homes in this strike… But of all the sorrows, the saddest

I have seen in my 31 years in Los Angeles is the closing of Morton’s.

‘Nuff said.
