In "The Confidence Man," Herman Melville describes the passengers on a Mississippi steamboat. They are of different ethnic groups, beliefs and religions. But as long as they're careful not to harm one another, they are doing the right thing. This is who we are at our best, like it or not.
And the words "Herman Melville" and "Mississippi" are hyperlinked. Whaaaaow. Weird. Anyway, wait... what? What!?
