Are Tiaras the New Power Scrunchies?

For some professional urbanites, the tiara is becoming the new power scrunchie, a sartorial coup de grâce for the #ladyboss set. Beyoncé, Madonna and Lady Gaga have reigned over Instagram in crowns in recent months, while Mindy Kaling wore an embellished gold headband for “The Mindy Project” wrap party in March and a studded halo for a Tribeca Film Festival red carpet premiere in April.

Damn the New York Times.  Damn its editors, and especialy damn Kate Zernicke, who wrote this piece of trash.

The NYT Public Editor talked to the Executive Editor about recent articles on $20/half dozen doughnuts and similar.

I asked the executive editor, Dean Baquet, whom he has in mind when he directs coverage and priorities.
“I think of The Times reader as very well-educated, worldly and likely affluent,” he said. “But I think we have as many college professors as Wall Street bankers.”

The New York Times runs a long article on the battle between various lobbying organizations about school lunches.  According to Nicholas Confessore  the Times, the participants are Schwan Food Company, Coalition for Sustainable School Meals Programs, the USDA, and ... "the lunch ladies".

No, seriously.  Throughout the article, thirty-one times, the people who manage, coordinate, and serve on the front lines of school lunches are "the lunch ladies".  
He advised the lunch ladies — a term that almost nobody in Washington uses in public and almost everyone uses in private — to support the legislation, even though it did not provide as much money as they wanted. 
Yup. Nobody says "lunch ladies" in public .... except the New York Times. 

There are no words to express my contempt.
