American societal nuance
It is easy for an outsider to come into a new land & wrap himself up with cynicism. And no doubt that such cynicism is frequently manifest in juicy conversations around the lifestyles of the locals.
It is however heartening to see the dignity of labour in the American society, be it limited to the middle and lower echelons of the social strata. Hard earned money makes a gentleman here, & it is very good to see that.
