Interesting mix of the aspirational (getting a college education,
buying a stable of econocars in five different colors – one for every
day of the working week, perhaps?) with the grimly necessary (medical
operation). Or perhaps the college education and degree-obtaining are
one and the same – getting the right degree gives you the skills
needed to make a good living poking around inside of patients.
What does a lottery ticket tell you about the values of a culture?
What else can offer a similarly revealing glimpse inside what makes a
collective culture tick? Local television commercials and billboards
come to mind. Also, why five econocars instead of one sports car?
