Not long ago, while reading through the pages of the New York Times, I came upon an article that really grabbed me, not because it was about some new horror abroad or another political debacle at home, but rather because it limned so cleanly the way American lives are changing. It was a story in the paper’s “house and home” section about the rise in popularity of the “triple-wide” medicine cabinets.
As the Times put it,
“First there were French fries. Then there were sport utility vehicles. Now even the most private of domestic preserves, the medicine cabinet, has been supersized. With the sales of lotions, potions, ‘nutraceuticals’ and pharmaceuticals climbing to new heights, manufactures are responding with medicine cabinets that are taller, wider and deeper than ever before.”
Definitely a film that every parent should see.
