The Kids Are Alright

And maybe the target should be their parents.

In that same interview, the Post quotes an online conversation Hagan had with a friend just before starting the blog: “Omgggg that is exactly the kind of thing I want to post—honest truths about these privileged children. LIKE THAT THEY ARE BORING.” Is this really necessary? Do these kids really need some 25-year-old with a master’s degree going after them for her own (or anybody else’s) amusement? 

Were Hagan to point some real satire at these kids’ parents, or the fans who obsess over them, and were she to do so in a way that is actually clever and funny, she might be forgiven for commandeering the identity of a little girl who had the bad fortune to be famous before she was even born. Until then, I’ll just have to find some other way to make it through the workday.
