    The snow, which doth the top of Pindus strew,
    Did never whiter shew,
    Nor Jove himself, when he a swan would be
    For love of Leda, whiter did appear:

    The modern American tourist now fills his experience with pseudo-events. He has come to expect both more strangeness and more familiarity than the world naturally offers. He has come to believe that he can have a lifetime of adventure in two weeks and all the thrills of risking his life without any real risk at all.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
