You Tell 'Em, Herman  
"Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed." - Herman Melville

"We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects."
— Herman Melville

If you like audio books, At Home is really well-done. I listen to a TON of audio books and have gotten pretty picky about narration. Bryson reads it himself and he possesses one of my very favorite voices of all time (half small-town Iowa, half England). I'd listen to him read a phone book.

Nothing to do but nod at your second paragraph; you're exactly right.
