Guys Like That

81479 This was not written yesterday, but a while back. It sure fits today, though. *Guys Like That* Drive very nice cars, and from where you sit in your dented last-century version of the most ordinary car in America, they look dark-suited and neat and fast. Guys like that look as if they are thinking about wine and marble floors, but really they are thinking about TiVo and ESPN. Women think that guys like that are different from the guys driving the trucks that bring cattle to slaughter, but guys like that are planning worse things than the death of a cow. Guys who look like that --- so clean and cool --- are quietly moving money across the border, cooking books, making deals that leave some people rich and some people poorer than they were before guys like that robbed them at the pump and on their electricity bills, and even now, guys like that are planning how to divide up that little farm they just passed, the one you used to call home. by Joyce Sutphen Joyce Sutphen lives in Chaska, Minnesota and teaches at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. 81480

    Such folly; such waste; and alas historically so repetitive.
