Sure.  A valid point.  I'll comment directly on her 10 steps in a 
different post, tomorrow.  Nevertheless, when considering the breath 
of her work it is crucial to understand her underlying style in 
approaching topics.  Her age may show a maturity in topics, which is 
great, but I dare say she is famous because of the book on beauty. 
This does not diminish her credentials and substantial insights 
concerning America's condition, wherein I do find a connection.

If you draw a circle in the sand and study only what's inside the 
circle, then that is a closed-system perspective. If you study what 
is inside the circle and everything outside the circle, then that is 
an open system perspective. - Buckminster Fuller
