Sometimes I Wish That It Would Rain Here

it does a body good (?)

here's a quote from someone commenting on somewhat spurious results in metaViz, specifically, the metaphor that "America is like milk":

I disagree; I do not think that America is very much like milk at all. Milk is thick, smooth, and sweet, while America is rather...gritty. America is like Metamucil.

some of the replies are just as good.

Yet America very rarely gives you your daily recommended fiber, so, perhaps America is just muddy water?

America is like milk in the sense that new immigrants tend to get homogenized.

absolutely fabulous, I couldn't have asked for a better alternative metaphor.
