"Graydon Carter Behaves Like A French Aristocrat On The Eve Of The Revolution -- Indulged, Entitled And Oblivious To The Approach Of The Tumbrils."

by Chiara Atik · October 23, 2009

Someone has harsh words for Vanity Fair Editor-In-Chief Graydon Carter. So he flew to Bermuda on a private jet on the day lay-offs happened at his magazine. What's the big deal?

Nick Denton, is appalled at Graydon Carter's behavior, but, uhm, has Nick Denton BEEN in an office where people are getting laid off? It's like, SUPER awkward! Sometimes people cry! Sometimes people are like, unreasonably resentful just because their bosses happen to have expensive tastes in suits and restaurants. And sometimes, from your desk in your corner office, you have to watch people sadly pack 10 to 15 years worth of office paperweights, calendars, posters, and staplers into sad little cardboard boxes, and sniffle as they shuffle past your door. I mean, god, they don't even have ASSISTANTS to do it for them! No one should have to see that, Nick Denton, no one. So, please, do NOT blame Graydon Carter for naturally wanting to cool his heels in Bermuda until things settle down. Besides, people will get over it! They'll go get a nice $55 truffled Macaroni and Cheese at Waverly Place and realize, life isn't so bad after all.
