The columnist with the common touch

I wonder what inspired Bolt to start telling us how well he has traveled?  I would have thought his occasional opera and art appreciation posts were distancing enough for most of his readership, but expanding it to "let's talk about the great places I have stayed" seems to be pushing it somewhat.

The art and opera posts are apiece with his philosophy I would have thought. I'm sure there are certain of his readers who think, 'yes, our culture once was great and now look what it's like!' It's quite similar, incidentally, to a certain left-wing approach to culture - to protect it by all means necessary (though often through the means of taxpayer funds), and to ignore or not understand that the process of 'protecting' that culture may be changing it irretrievably from what it once was.
