Release Date: December 1, 2010

An article in the Wall Street Journal about England's Prince William marrying a non-royal, and how in the U.S. class distinctions are more blurred, quotes Elayne Rapping, professor emeritus of American studies and a nationally known pop culture expert. "We kid ourselves into thinking we're all the same, that we're a classless society," she said. "Class divisions in this country are getting wider all the time."
