Street Talk 11.08.12 (asked @ Star Market in Salinas.)
What do you take for granted?
Wednesday, November 21, 2012
Follow-up: What part of American history is most misrepresented?
LESLIE EARNEST | Retired | Salinas
A: That we are the country that gives. We give so much. We’re the first responders of the world.
Red Scare: That the Pilgrims set up an almost Communist society, and it didn’t work.
TREVOR HOLLAND | Chemist | Salinas
A: I take my friends for granted. Even my wife. They’re there for me, and I need to be there for them more.
Italian Beef: Columbus Day. It’s completely bogus. We give Native Americans so little, and have done nothing but take from them.
KATHY HUGGINS | Client Associate | Salinas
A: Good health. I don’t exercise enough or maintain my body, but I’m disease free and don’t get sick too often.
Dodo Birds: Thanksgiving. People look at it as a time to watch football and eat. It’s more a time of reflection. Spend the day with the people for whom you’re thankful.
