From the League of Ordinary Gentlemen, Burt Likko’s essay on Classe in American society. While American society is not as stratified as the British society that Nancy Mitford broke into U and non-U, differences do exist. When time was (grade 7) I was taught that class wasn’t just about money, it was money and occupation and hobbies and sports and disability and race and religion and a whole host of other factors (come to think of it, this was probably about the time that the book Likko references was published.
