The authentic anti-elitism of the Boston native

There is a tale of a rather stereotypical student who rolled his brimming cart to the "No more than 10 items" line in a Cambridge supermarket. The cashier rang it all up, without a word of complaint, but then turned to him and asked, "Tell me, is it that you are from MIT and can't read, or from Harvard and can't count?"

(from a discussion of Larry Summer's firing at TPM)
