Bobo wants an allowance

Is there any pundit currently pundicizing that is more consistently moronic that NYT's David Brookes? Today, the Modern Culture Maven decrees that separate accounts for married-couples is another sign of the downfall of the institution of marriage.

Here's an idea for a future book, David. Turn all your finances over to a trusted individual, such as a spouse, for a significant period, such as six months. Determine what would be a generous allowance for yourself, and have that trusted individual give you that amount weekly, in cash. No credit or debit cards allowed. It is understood that your 'financier' will give you more cash for the asking. Then at the end of the period, write a book about how cozy and warm it felt, being treated like a baby for six months.
