Mr. Manners

Gay renaissance man Philip Galanes will helm the New York Times‘ new etiquette column. And he’s got quite the resume: “[Galanes] may not be a household name, it is difficult to imagine someone more primed to write about social mores alongside the sociological trivia, careerist self-revelation and spectator-sport consumption of that section. Galanes is twice graduated from Yale, was an entertainment lawyer at white-shoe firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, has two novels to his name and dabbles as an interior designer.” Slacker.
