    in the 60's and have never forgotten the feeling of enlightenment I got when I hit upon his explanation for things like everybody has to have a lawn (to show you have wealth enough to let good ground go to waste) and wearing delicate, expensive clothes (proof that you don't have to do any real work).

    I don't recall, though, that I ever read anything else by him
