I love Andy Ihnatko’s columns. He’s like the Dave Barry of Macintosh tech columnists… or maybe more the Penn Jillette.
But his column in the November 2010 Macworld near to made my brain explode from cognitive dissonance:
This photo has been running on Andy’s column for over a year now, mutton-chop sideburns and all. And he looks pretty pleased about it, doesn’t he?
“I don’t like quaint?” “I hate re-enactions?” “I can’t want to get into the future?”
This is the photo of a man who marched through Georgia with Sherman. This is the photo of a man whose “future” includes Reconstruction.
This is a man whose smiling image sells oatmeal cartons.
Beam me up, Ebenezer.
