On Congratulations

A grad student friend and some of the professors in my department just released some interesting research about how some people can change their attitudes towards groups of people by watching TV. I gave one of their surveys to my class for extra credit.

If what they are saying is true, given the significant amount of reruns of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman I've been watching via Netflix, I should have an increasingly accepting attitude towards women, doctors, Native Americans, men torn between Native American culture and the love of a Boston Brahmin, and surly drunks who never seem to do the right thing until the very end of the show.
