Great comment

I just have to pass this one along:
...looking from the outside in at US modern Anthropological Realities {say for example the recent mania to acquire that strange plastic bauble, the iPhone} I would opine that Statesiders are exotic and different if not downright alarming . Let's not even look too closely at the tattooing and piercing, the communal rituals {MySpace, YouTube}, the religious cults {Catholicism, Scientology, Fundamentalism} and the elite ruling classes who preside over a culture of invasion, conquest and death. Anthropology begins at home!
Make sure to read the post that led up to that comment. Anthropology begins at home, indeed!
