Primer for David Brooks' Gourmet Sandwich

Melanie Wong | Jul 12, 201703:50 PM

Didn't have to wait long for the internet to respond to this paragraph in David Brooks' recent column:

"Recently I took a friend with only a high school degree to lunch. Insensitively, I led her into a gourmet sandwich shop. Suddenly I saw her face freeze up as she was confronted with sandwiches named ‘Padrino’ and ‘Pomodor’ and ingredients like soppressata, capicollo and a striata baguette. I quickly asked her if she wanted to go somewhere else and she anxiously nodded yes and we ate Mexican.” — David Brooks, “How We Are Ruining America,” New York Times, 7/11/17
