A Northwestern Education in Action

If any of you took Cultural Anthropology at NW, you may remember the article we read about flashing. No…not that kind. Flashing here is calling someone but only letting it ring once. The point is that they see your number and call you back so you have to pay for the bulk of the call. It’s a bit of an economic thing—whoever has the most money is expected to pay for the call. It’s real. It’s funny. It’s somehow frustrating.
