Life at the mall

I will do a post soon on some thoughts on the notion and cultural history of the notion of bourgeois, but I want to offer s brief comment from s strip mall somewhere in America.

Where I used to see superficial, silly fat people, most of whom could not find France or Germany on a map of Europe or give even a rudimentary account of Smerican history, I now see people with all the equipment for powerful enthusiasms who await an honest revelation, a better reason to live than the ones they've been living for, if I might quote Bruce.

Nothing has changed here, but I am changing, and of course "the world" changes with me.
