The good old corruption was better, when rich people would buy their kids’ entry into the Ivy League by donating a new building, or funding a scholarship for the kids of families without means. Sure, there was corruption involved, but there was also a public good derived from it.

Deb-a couple of thoughts on the Gillette ad here.
It's obvious that Gillette's ad people have lost their minds in the past few months, first attacking masculinity and now celebrating obesity. The latter really bugs me. My weight has fluctuated most of my life. I've probably never been more than 30 lbs overweight but I know that if I'm even 10 over I feel like crap all of the time. The "body-positive" people are full of it (as well as food). What's really frustrating is that there are any number of potential health disasters that can be directly tied to being even a little overweight (belly fat and heart attacks in men, for example). It's proven science, and the people who purport to be big fans of science ignore it all because feelings and stuff.
Give me the Nike ad celebrating the 80-year-old nun doing Ironman triathlons any day.
