Listen up, people.

Last year you read this list for fun. But that was last year, when you had it soft, people, when you just giggled about the silliness of it all.

No more. Now, c'est la guerre. The truce flags of the status wars -- made of denim, of course -- have been yanked down and the battle is on, the fur is flying (mink and coyote being particularly conspicuous), and the big question is: Which side are you on?

In or out. Make up your mind. Because nobody's hiding the big artillery of money, fashion or snobbery any more. Noses are once more being used as aiming devices, to be peered down at the unworthy. Is that the rataplan of cultural combat we hear in the night, going tackytackytackytacky . . .?

It's going to be a long campaign. As they say in the Army, there's always somebody who doesn't get the word. Make sure it isn't you.
