The Buffy Paradigm hits the big time! Of all things, the New York Times gives this little devil its due. Unfortunately it requires registration to read it.
Lisa Tozzi's "Slaying Terrorism" is an op-ed column in the August 4th edition of the New York Times that does a comparison and contrast to a paper titled Biological Warfare and the Buffy Paradigm and the Buffy series itself. Almost tongue in cheek, her piece does attempt to take with some seriousness the metaphor of Buffy's tale and that of America's struggle with worldwide terrorism. Would this make George W. Bush the metaphorical equivalent of Buffy? I hope not. I hear he looks terrible in inexpensive yet fashionable clothes.
