Article about cake mixes in the New York Times

This article really infuriated me. Sometimes I feel like there's an ongoing plot afoot trying to convince people that really easy cooking tasks are incredibly difficult. The author keeps going on about the tyranny of sifting flour. I mean, yes it's true that sifting your dry ingredients can add extra lightness to a cake, but it's really not necessary to sift anything to make a basic cake that's 3 million times better than a cake mix cake. Not to mention the fact that the cake she raved about (banana cake) is probably one of the easiest, no fuss cakes for anyone to make from scratch. Is it just me who feels this way?
