- the Heart of America
That said, I'd watched greed/consumerism increasingly dominate American culture for over 40 years before 9/11 but then a funny thing happened. Remember the Yuppies? They changed. A major shift happened in American culture; instead of continually chasing better paying jobs and more expensive Beemers, Yuppies started turning down those jobs, even taking demotions, to move to the country and spend more time with their families. They'd realized that life is short and "Money can't buy Happiness". Of course that didn't last long. Just a few years, but I was fascinated by the trend, as short as it was.
