I have no idea who the author of this blog is, but he hits the nail on the head with regard to this week’s episode of Gossip Girl and its invocation of my alma mater, Dalton, namely “The Dalton lacrosse team was not very good in my day…so that was funny.” I believe that when I was a senior they had a winless season and some preposterously long streak of goaless games. It’s just not, fundamentally, a very sporty school.

Important list of Dalton pop culture references here, though Wikipedia misses the fact that the film and book versions of American Psycho differ in this regard.
