America's Obsession with Consumption
"Americans are still voting for denial. The SUV forest thickens. The real forest thins. America voted for the asphalt jungle...Since the 1970s, our cars, homes, and stomachs have become the biggest in the world. The mayor of Washington, D.C., wants a publicly funded $530-million baseball stadium a half year after the city slashed 285 teachers. Little about daily life in America has changed after 9/11 except for long lines at airports and allowing fear to become an excuse to cling even more desperately to cash."
