In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.
Genesis 1:1 – 2
Today we drove home behind a pickup truck that had been attached to enormous wheels and raised two feet off the ground. It blocked the road completely from us – and we drive a minivan at home! But we saw nothing behind its enormous empty truck bed or around its fantastically thick black tires; it dominated the road. As we drove along, the driver tossed a burning cigarette out the window to shatter its sparks across the black asphalt.
I think this experience exemplifies the US way of behaving.
