Welcome to the Menaissance

So long, metrosexuals: Welcome to the Menaissance - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: "Metrosexuals, take note: The party's over.

The man's man is back. And he's had enough of unisex salons, simpering emo music and the emasculating kryptonite of the Oprahsphere.

Or so say a spate of ads, books and websites that hail the emergence of the retrosexual, whose attitude and style hearken back to the strong, silent type of the '50s and early '60s.

The retrosexual keeps things simple. He does not own more hair and skin care products than his wife or girlfriend. He does not 'accessorize.'"

Obviously the Dos Equis "Most Interesting Man in the World" campaign was WAY ahead of the curve.

Word verification: "coments". Seems appropriate.

I never left, unlike a bunch of you pussies out there.
