'Tell me your company, and I'll tell you your opinions,' might be said to many a man who piques himself on a select and superior view of things, distinct from the vulgar.

'I don't think we need to be in Brooklyn,'" said Marie Labropoulos, who recently moved to Westchester County and opened a shop, Kalliste, selling artisanal vegan soap in Dobbs Ferry. "'We're bringing Brooklyn with us.'" NO. You hear me? NO. That is not allowed. Listen, I'm not 100 percent against all hipsterdom. I like Arcade Fire and I appreciate locally sourced goat taco food trucks as much as the next guy. But leave the suburbs alone. The American suburbs are a place for disaffected white people to live out their bland existences while a dark subcurrent of perversion and anxiety lurks just underneath. I don't want that ruined. How will Todd Solondz ever make a movie again if every asshole in the suburbs IS Todd Solondz?
