Now we are more like a "salad bowl" where each retains the qualities of the
old ways and contributes them to the flavor of the total culture. In the
light of this discussion, however, it is probably worth noting the presence
of a "salad dressing" (common language, etc.) which melds the
conglomeration into a richly flavored whole.
Hope this concept is of some help.
