David Brooks does sociolinguistics?

It's been a busy day, but can't let it pass without noting that ever-flailing NYT columnist and famed neuroendocrinologist David Brooks has now ventured into what I think is probably sociolinguistics:
The less educated speak the dialect of struggle; the more educated, the dialect of self-fulfillment.
(The on-line version lacks a period at the end.)
