Uptight East Coast Wasps?
a: Harvard ~
b: New York City
What: "To borrow from St. Augustine, Harvard is the "city of man" in all its glory, and however much you'd like to shelter your kids from the worldliness of modern American life, a certain kind of kid (the hyper-ambitious kind, mainly) is going to want go out and experience it eventually. Or to use another analogy, Harvard is like New York City: It's not a place for everybody, and it's not necessarily the best place to form good moral character or pursue the life of the mind. "

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
