Prada Prada

There is a bit in the Brecht/Weill piece, Mahagonny, where one of the characters is sentenced to death for the crime of having no money. I suppose this is to make a point about the way things were going in a world where superiority of all kinds was being touted.

Far fetched? Maybe, but recently, I noticed that the chiefs at Prada, the Italian clothing empire, had demanded that "Ugly" staff be sacked.

So it's a crime, punishable by loss of the right to work, if you are with blemish. Who cares? But one thing is sure, in tests, people chose good lookers. Ever wondered why your boss was a good-looking bitch?
