It features everything from chapters, to page numbers, to fonts. Covering subject's ranging from healthcare ("I shudder to think where we'd be without the wide variety of prescription drugs to treat our maladies, such as think-shuddering") to the economy ("Life is giving us lemons, and we're shipping them to the Chinese to make our lemon-flavored leadonade") to food ("Feel free to deep fry this book-it's a rich source of fiber"), Stephen gives America the dose of truth it needs to get back on track.

    In this eBook you will find all information about Shopping Malls in the USA / United States of America. The mall shopping center is an interesting place. It is of course not just a place to go shopping, but it has become a multi-purpose place. Normally, people used to go shopping in downtown areas of cities and go there for other activities as well, but they now go to the mall. It has become a fixture of modern life, one of those things that we can't imagine doing without. For a relatively modern development, the mall shopping center has been a successful idea that has made fortunes for developers, investors, and retailers. What it has done for the average person is another story, but its importance in everyday life is huge, and the influence of the mall is everywhere. It seems like the primary function of a mall these days is a social space, a place for people of all ages to meet up, eat, talk, and generally hang out together. For young people, it's the only place to get together and socialize. For others, the shopping center is a place to walk (mall walking is an established practice for older folks) and meet friends, but they have other social spaces like the church, the community center, and so on. But for the young crowd, it's the mall or stay at home.
