Travel Tips for Wayne

billus's new Wayne Page

by billus

I don't know why my vt page is so opaque, I am actually from Wayne PA, named for a revolutionary war general. Should say something like, try Peace a Pizza it is my favorite....Oh the stories I can't tell.

Wayne used to be this middle middle middle, umm, class community, a phalanx of besuited businessmen would emerge from silverliners at 5:40 PM to be picked up by reliable wives and a back seat full of kids, hi all bodies! hi dad! Yes that is young billus in the back of the Rambler. Onh library hour, nursery school, swim meets, pennies on the train tracks and commuter trainsnow its the same only with this bohemian bourgeouis mythos, coffee kulture plus 4 wheel drive. thanks to local boy who describes it at length in that bobos in paradise book. All that crap is ancient history now that the economy has shaken out all the top-earning mangers and they have to do real jobs, like pack bags at the supermarket.

But one really weird thing that never happened there is now an internet
FW:FW:FW:FW urban myth (wayne=radnor township)
http://www.snopes.com/legal/colander.htm

Wayne was famous for 15 minutes when it appeared in a 2000 ok-seller by local boy David Brooks "Bobos in Paradise" The New Upper Class and how they got There"

DAVID BROOKS: A bobo is a bourgeois bohemian. These are the people who are thriving in the information age. They're the people, you go into their homes and they've got these renovated kitchens that are the size of aircraft hangars, with plumbing. You know, you see the big sub- zero refrigerators and you open the door and you think, they could stick an in-law suite in the side. So these are the people who are really making a lot of money, and I spent the last few years going across upscale America looking at the people who are really thriving in the information age. And one of the things, the chief characteristic I noticed, was that they've smashed the old categories.

It used to be easy to tell a bourgeois from a bohemian. And the bourgeois were the straight-laced suburban types, went to church, worked in corporations. And the bohemians were the arty free spirits, the rebels. But if you look at upscale culture, at the upper middle classes, the people in Silicon Valley, you find they've smashed all the categories together. Some people seem half yuppie-bourgeois and half hippie- bohemian. And so if you take bourgeois and bohemian and you smash them together, you get the ugly phrase "bobo."

read the ugly truth online damn you, Brooks!
