Well...I suppose.

After reading this NY Times article about high school students finding inspiration in The Great Gatsby, I was slightly vexed. Was it really an inspirational tale of the American Dream?

We might also teach those students that if they walk into a jungle at 17, they might walk out at 21 and by God, they'll be rich! The greatest things can happen!
