Well, three generations back from me, one of my ancestors shovelled shit
for a living; basically 90% of my family are working class as hell
(whatever that means these days), but I'm now Dr Taylor. There's hope
for the life of the mind yet I think. What cracks me up is reading about
the screaming abdabs the british (inter alia) fin de siecle 'liberals'
had about universal (for men) suffrage (let *them* vote?!). We're always
alright in the end.
