A couple weeks ago, we learned that Dana's "Night Out With" in the Times Styles section wasn't really him; apparently his publisher had told him to "ham it up," to make it seem like he was a character in his own book. Mmmmkay! We wonder, did s/he have a hand in what he wrote in this bio?:

In my opinion, beauty is that which naturally pleases the senses. Style is an artificial attempt to help beauty along and is often confused for beauty itself.

We suppose this is what passes for deep on Wall Street. Also, one gets style at "Gucci, Turnbull & Asser, Stubbs & Wootton." Of course.
