There is no reason in the world for the LA Times to have run this piece in yesterday’s paper.

Is there anyone who believes that an article about women undergoing plastic surgery to their private parts in an effort to emulate porn stars is newsworthy, uplifting, useful or even relevant to 99.9% of the reading public?

All it succeeds in doing is coarsening the tenor of our public conversation.

Surely even The Times can do better.

I guess one could make a case that genital plastic surgery is news in Tinseltown–and it’s not at all surprising to see the L.A. Times enter National Enquirer territory.
