One of my favorite topics to write about, love, is also one of the most adored by the readers of The New York Times.
On the list of Keywords most frequently searched by NYTimes.com readers, “modern love” comes in at number two. This tickles me. Love is eternal, historic, the way, the end, the mean, …enduring. And the average newspaper consumer has love on the brain.
I’m not sure if I fancy this revelation more … or the revelation that Glenn Beck (the voice of “our nation’s conservative populist anger” and ranking right-winger), who also holds rank on the Times’ list, has thoroughly consumed the consciousness of the Grey Lady’s apparently love-inspired liberal-lefty professional readership. If the Pubs have one thing right, it’s a cast of characters that are a real treat for entertainment value.
Anyway, love on…modern lovers.
