From time to time in the glossier sections of the media (ie not Australian Left Review) my eye has fallen upon the puzzling phrase 'New Age Man'. This appellation often appears beneath photographs of short-haired young men with round framed glasses and pleasantish expressions. These creatures, who all seem to be in advertising, talk earnestly about their emotional commitment to Gillian or Constance and their role in successfully raising little advertising people. One imagines them saying "ciao" to their children as they drive away from the creche.
