…has that frisson of naturalness and reality that the covers of college guidebooks have, you know, where there’s four people sitting* on the steps of The Quad, all laughing joyously at something just wonderful in a textbook, and the four people are, in order, in every single college guidebook photo, an Asian Girl, a Nonthreatening Black Guy (possibly in a colorful neo-Cosbian sweater), a Hispanic Guy**, and a Somewhat “Alternative” White Guy With a Unicycle Slung Over His Back.


*  And/or chilling.
