Samantha Brick - you remember her: the British journalist who sincerely believes she's too darned pretty - has found her niche: dissing women, reducing them to nothing more than appearance, and generally ranking and rating them based on the presence or absence of frou frou.
Unlike Brick, Mary Beard is a beyond-learned professor who has her own television show, is much admired, and thought of with great fondness. Samantha Brick believes the all natural 57 year old professor is too ugly to be on television.
All of the really ugly old guys on television (who, we assume, swoon at the image of Brick) are lovely on the inside, and should be seen everywhere and all over the place.
Mary Beard won't lose sleep over Samantha Brick
