Driving in to Boston this morning I was behind a minivan with a Harvard Alumni bumper sticker. OK, we have an initial diagnosis—liberal elite. See this blog post.
But, then the contradictory signs. The license plate was MOMOF 8. My wife explained that it wasn't the eighth vehicle of the Momof Company, but Mother of Eight. There was the Gadsen Flag. There was a bumper sticker that has "St Patrick, flanked by crosses. There was a small sticker saying "Life is Good". Add in "FEIS MOBILE" and the "Step Dance" Oval. Plus two others, but I didn't get them due to fine print and the fact that I was coming off the 93 and spiraling down to Storrow Drive.
So, who IS this person, who seems to cut across stereotypes? A true American. Someone I am sure would be interesting to talk with.
UPDATE: A reader pointed out to me that just because it says Harvard Alumni (yes, I corrected the misspelling in the first para) doesn't mean they graduated from the regular BA/BS program. It could have been the Divinity School or even the Extension Program. :-)
