Downtown Nodak

Klosterman in Time Out. "People talk about how strange it must have been growing up on a farm in North Dakota. But I think kids who grow up in Manhattan have the weirdest understanding of what the world is like. They essentially don't even live in America. They live in this place where nobody drives, where you can get anything you want at any given time, where diversity is normal. A political moderate here is somebody who, like, doesnt want McCain to die. To me, that would be weird."


I don't know what I like more: Klosterman's great answers, or how the interviewer has no idea what to do with them and so decides to just change topics.

This may be the best description of contemporary American culture I have read to date.
