Wisdom from Ms. Paglia

D and myself occasionally enjoy the commentary and criticism of Camille Paglia – especially her celebrated feminist analysis on the Basic Instinct DVD.* **

In today’s, Camille says:

Workaholism is an introspection-killing disease, the anxious disability of tunnel-vision middle managers.

Not really a condition I seem especially prone too, but then middle management has always been a step or two beyond me...

* Shit jobs sometimes have their minor compensations. One such featured a lady in another department called Catherine Tramell. Sadly she wore knickers, didn’t write novels, and didn’t drive a white Esprit.

** Director Paul Verhoeven also did Starship Troopers; the best comedy of the 1990s.
