If you take 100 people whohave one foot on a block of ice and the other foot in a fireplace,you can argue that the average person is comfortable. In reality,no one's average. And that goes for all the various segments ofour population, too. Whether you're talking about ethnic,gender, socioeconomic or regional groups, you have to remember thateveryone within those groups is an individual. You've got tostop looking for mass solutions.
