You are what you read

A 20-something woman wearing a long green canvas trench coat sits reading intently on the northbound Red Line.

She sports a ring in her lower right lip, and a stud in her upper left lip.

She's reading "People Without Government: An Anthropology of Anarchy."

"Stereotypes are true people. That's why everyone hates them." -- T.C. Boyle at a book signing


In ten years, she'll be a churchgoing suburban homemaker. In 20 years, she'll start voting Republican.

Wow, what a false statement.

Yeah, but that's what THEY say.

The THEY who said that (and that's a paraphrase anyway) was Winston Churchill.

its funny cause its so true
