By now I'm sure you've heard about hilarious and very clever web site / soon to be released book Stuff White People Like. I say it is very clever because I am jealous and currently brainstorming my own million dollar idea. It is for a fact a three hundred thousand dollar idea and I'd settle for that too.
I was particularly struck by this paragraph in the post praising Universal Healthcare:
But the secret reason why all white people love socialized medicine is that they all love the idea of receiving health care without having a full-time job. This would allow them to work as a freelance designer/consultant/copywriter/photographer/blogger, open their own bookstore, stay at home with their kids, or be a part of an Internet start-up without having to worry about a benefits package. Though many of them would never follow this path, they appreciate having the option.
And to that, this white person would just like to add: living by the ocean, drinking micro-brews with her gay friends.
