Opinion: Off-Roading at the Mall
We Americans. We're proud, we're tough, and we're just not all that purposeful sometimes, are we? Cases in point: we wear work boots to nightclubs to be hip; we wear diving watches and sit at the shallow end of the pool. Most egregiously, perhaps, we drive big SUVs and trucks with locking differentials and barely manage to negotiate speedbumps at the local strip mall parking lot. We want our cake, but only so we can stare at it through the plastic wrap. It's just the way we are. And it's wrong.
