    Martha Stewart's Living magazine (don't hate me) last month and in one article Martha brassily boasted that 'brass is back!'.  Sorry for the pun.

    Anyway, as I found brass hideous growing up I looked at the 'new brass' fixtures and they were every bit as ugly as I remembered.  The centerpiece of the 'new brass' kitchen was a brass faucet that retails for two thousand bucks.  

    No amount of nostalgia for something I disliked intuitively even as a child would make me blow a couple of grand on a faucet even if I had that kind of cash, which I don't.  But you're right, someone out there will buy it.
