Right. Somebody will get tenure/promotion for figuring out how to manipulate
us into buying more stuff.

By the way: The links weren't working for me and I have class coming up,
but... Wasn't there a study done ages ago of interviews with bilinguals that
showed that people talked about things differently depending on which
language was used in the interview? Was it with Japanese-American WWII
internees? Or was it Spanish-English bilinguals? I seem to recall that it
was California somewhere. It's hard getting old...
