Yesterday, Town and Country, the Hearst Corporation’s society mag, or rather, its blog (how, chic, how now, dahhling) excavated Takeover in Ta-Ta-Ville, my 1988 article on the decline of Southampton for New York magazine, to point out that Sunday’s Styles of the Times cover story on the effects of new money on the place now universally known as The Hamptons is (shock! horror!) just a re-telling of a story we’ve heard before. Thereby telling it yet again. Can you pass the Tums, toots?
