(Offensive) Quote of the Day: The Samurai Shopper Gives the "Cigar Store Indian" a Contemporary Use

"Sometimes the best shopping partner is the one who sits like a cigar store Indian and reads the paper." -- The Samurai Shopper in a post describing shopping at AllSaints. Somewhere in the New York Times' style guide there must be a section on racial monikers form the 19th century. And even if there's not, they must have at least watched that episode of Seinfeld involving Jerry's Native American girlfriend.
