Is this discussion evidence that socal evolution, too, takes place
differently in different populations sometimes living cheek-by-
jowl?  My midwestern grandmother, who came from a prominent
Milwaukee family and married into a prominent Indiana family,
wore lipstick, drank during prohibition (of course, her parents
owned a brewery), and drove like a demon.  This was during the
first two decades of the century.  She was at least as wild as
I ever was, and traveled in much more respectable circles
(professional, professorial, and political), at least in her 20's.
