Kill "The Creative Class"

Not the people in it. Many of them are cool. I just hate the term "The Creative Class". It sounds incredibly elitist ("oooh, I'm more creative than you are.") And I find it highly disappointing that so many members of "The Creative Class" have embraced the term "The Creative Class" as an accurate description of themselves.

Talk about a designation tailor made to make us all look like a bunch of stuck-up assholes who couldn't give a crap about "The Working Man".

Can we please kill it? Please? Please? Please?

I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming. Now that it is down to just a few candidates I would think that this would be a bigger issue.

Live Earth just picked up this topic and put out an article ( http://www.liveearth.org/news.php ) asking why the presidential candidates are not being solicited for their stance on the issue of the climate change. I just saw an article describing each candidate’s stance on global warming and climate change on earthlab.com http://www.earthlab.com/articles/PresidentialCandidates.aspx . So obviously they care about it. Is it the Medias fault for not asking the right questions or is it the candidates’ fault for not highlighting the right platforms? Does anyone know of other websites or articles that touch on this subject and candidates’ views? This is the biggest problem of the century and for generations to come…you would think the next president of the United States would be more vocal about it.
