Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard."

"First, of course, a love story requires one character (human or otherwise) to be in love or fall in love with another character (human or otherwise). Second, there must be some obstacle to the love—or else there’s love but no story."
