cultural commentary

(from New York Magazine, 9/5/08, as a preface to a slide show of hot pictures of the subject, by Chris Rovzar and Jessica Pressler):

"It's been a full 48 hours since we last gushed about Levi "Sex on Skates" Johnston. We were going to try to make it through the whole weekend, but seeing him in the audience at the Republican National Convention last night was just too much to bear. He wasn't even chewing gum this time! That chin! That freshly cropped boy hair! He is truly in the most glorious peak of a high-school athlete's hot period. Sure, shortly after he graduates he will get a beer gut and lose those curls. In a few short years he'll be nearly unrecognizable! (We know that's harsh, but think back to all those boys who wore white college hats in your high-school days. Are they hot now? Or did the same thing happen to them that happened to Vince Vaughn?)"
