Cultural Dislocation at Sam's Club
I went to Sam's today (to get tires rebalanced). Sam's Club is generally good (as is Walmart) as a snapshot of mainstream, non-Hollywood American Culture. So, as I was walking around with little Macrina (not her real name) I noticed an interesting disjunction:
Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code right next to a whole stack of Purpose-Driven Life(tm) bibles.
Do you think anyone who walks through that store realizes that the one attempts to destroy the other?
