    在籃球比賽和考試中的作弊行為頗具典型性。美國正在經歷一次週期性的道德敗壞——這是自20世紀20年代以來的第一次。在這樣一個罪孽深重的年代,人們對罪惡的容忍程度比他們承認的更深。要瞭解事情真相,就需要明白字裡行間的言外之意。社會的表達總是躲躲閃閃的,報紙批評腐化墮落時,到處都用委婉的語言來修飾。較為典型的例子:妓女被叫作「應召女郎」或「派對女郎」,有時也稱「玩樂女郎」。與一個男人睡覺,便說她們「開了派對」。(「跟這個約翰開完派對後,你去做什麼?」「我去洗澡。」)日復一日讓這個最古老的職業聽起來富有魅力。

    Frances Gerety, a female copywriter (unmarried) captured precisely the sentiment De Beers needed when she penned the line “a diamond is forever,”and rewrote the history of American advertising. In four words, Gerety evoked the totemic weight of a diamond, and the old-as-the-stars wonder of its natural origins.
