This week’s “Snide Remarks” Classic column is #355, “Mister Wind,” in which a trip to the mall results in a stroll down memory lane. It was originally published on April 20, 2003. April 20 is also Hitler’s birthday, but that’s not really relevant here.
And to the person who posted this comment last week — “What I’m most interested in is the columns that will never be ‘Snide Remarks’ classics. Any chance you’ll let us know which those are?” — first of all, no one likes a smart-aleck, and second of all, yes! I’m preparing a feature to be posted very soon that will count down what I consider to be the 10 worst “Snide Remarks” columns ever. So that should be a great deal of fun. (We’ll balance it out with a list of the 10 best ones, too.)
