    hark, a gwoteist..., 2007-04-09 12:32:22 | Main | Fritz Fischer's curious usage of the word "ignominious"..., 2007-04-09 20:52:32

    Shorter Fritz Fischer's "Making Them Like Us", chapters 1 and 2:

    "The Peace Corps was a new foreign aid institution that idealized the image of its American volunteers as pioneeering cowboys in the mythical archetype of the Marlboro Man.

    "Many young Marlboro men and women epitomized the image of the pioneer gone out west to seek exotic new places and meet idealized natives living in what was unironically considered a state of nature."

    Next chapter: the psychiatric selection of the Marlboro Quotient.
