Some thoughts on this quote from the Vanity Fair profile of secretive FB genius Sean Parker:
Sean Parker was sitting in World Civilization class at his Virginia high school when someone brought him a note. His father, it read, was waiting to take him to an orthodontist appointment. A chill ran down Parker’s spine. He didn’t have an orthodontist.
Later in the story Parker says Jack Kerouac and Jim Morrison are his role models. They probably did not have an orthodontist, even a pretend one.
