In Jennifer Price’s essay “The Plastic Pink Flamingo: A Natural History,” she expresses her view on the Unites States Culture to the American citizens. She describes the pink flamingo, a flashy and iconic figure, in a manner that proves ironic and critical to make her point that the culture of the United States has become attention seeking and overconfident. In Price’s first paragraph, she uses the historical background of the pink flamingo to show the transition, or evolution, of its rising popularity. “The Flamingo had made the bird synonymous with wealth and pizzazz”, is a direct insight to her point that the U.S was becoming greed stricken.
Railroad companies took advantage of these stops and designed routes to stop in cities where they owned grain storage warehouses. Since railroad owners were working together in a coalition of near-monopolies -- known as a trust -- they were able to successfully prevent other routes of transportation for grain. Farmers, having been left with no other available options, paid the onerous rates to store their crop. In response, members of the Granger movement, known as Granges, pressed States to set maximum rates on the pricing of grain storage. With Chicago being the most popular “grain-elevator” city, the State of Illinois was the first to act, and set a maximum storage charge for grain.

The pink flamingo’s rise to fame came courteous of the Flamingo hotel in Miami, Florida, and the casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. They were so successful largely due to the flamingo being the color pink, which was their “claim to boldness” (Price), and being bold is very important in extravagant cities such as Miami and Las Vegas. Throughout her essay Price is effectively able to show the influence that the color pink had on the country by using satirical devices, mainly repetition. She repeats the work several different times throughout the essay, in different contexts, mainly in the third paragraph.

The penny is perhaps one of the most historical, and mass produced items in our country. To remove these precious objects from our economy would be illogical and unbeneficial.

Together, pennies can be very powerful in certain situations. “Washington Middle School hosted it’s annual
Tom was the one that introduced Nick to the Valley of Ashes, Nick’s first impression of the place was “About half way between West Egg and New York the motor road hastily joins the railroad and runs beside it for a quarter of a mile, so as to shrink away from a certain desolate area of land” (Fitzgerald, 23). In the novel, the Valley of Ashes appears to be a place that nobody wants to visit; and is abandoned by the rest of society. This filthy place in between New York and West Egg displays the harsh reality of being poor in a wealthy and developed society. At this point, Nick sees a train full of passengers waiting to pass by, “ the passengers on waiting trains can stare at the dismal scene for as long as half an hour” (Fitzgerald 24). This clearly illustrates that the rich looks down upon the Valley of Ashes in disbelief; they cannot believe what they’re seeing in front of them because they are all used to all the luxuries in the world.

Ethics can even be challenged or vastly changed simply by altering the viewpoint of a problem slightly, even when the final outcome is the same. The greatest example of this challenging of ethical standpoints of a person, with only a small altering of viewpoints, can be seen in the “Trolley Problem” first outlined by philosopher Philippa Foot. In Foot’s original ethical problem a driver of a runaway tram must make a choice, stay on route and kill five workmen ahead of him or steer the tram onto another spur of track killing only one man.
