The upper class sips pink cocktails in Pucci dresses in the Hamptons, while we’re stuck fiddling with the ol’ air conditioner, nary a benefit or store opening anywhere to amuse us. … Good thing there is table tennis, synchronized swimming and beach volleyball to be watched! (How do we go back to flabby-middled New York men after this fling with the athletic types?)
