Bobo (bohemian bourgeois)

The concept of “the Bobo” has been flittering about in my mind for years now.  I need to read the book.  Anyway, here’s Rod Dreher’s quick summary of David Brooks’ quick summary of what a Bobo is.

 “Marx once wrote that the bourgeois takes all that is sacred and makes it profane. The Bobos take everything that is profane and make it sacred,” he writes in Bobos in Paradise, his highly entertaining foray into pop sociology.We take the quintessential bourgeois activity, shopping, and turn it into quintessential bohemian activities: art, philosophy, social action.
