The Da Vinci Code

At the supermarket today I saw a magazine, Women's World or something like that, with a headline "The Da Vinci Code Diet." I gathered (as I quickly packed my Chardonnay), that the article discussed a diet based on "codes" in the eponymous novel.

The book is badly written: the history in it is garbage: and I have no interest in doing anything that sides with Christian conservatives (who do massively more social damage than Dan Brown ever could), but when it gets to the stage of "coded diets," it's time for serious (or even semi-serious people) NEVER TO MENTION the book again.

Indeed, it becomes impossible to discuss it -- it has become part of the white noise of our cultural milieu.
