RARA-AVIS: The car thing

Richard Moore said of my comments: "You are free to make assumptions, of course, about the guy next to you at the stop light with the expensive car but it is, just that, an assumption."

What I said was: "the kind of car, the use or non-use of a car, and the relativity of the car to any persons environment does help 'Characterize' him or her."

Which is a more than making an "assumption" about the guy in the expensive car next to me. There far more things to know about a character to "help" Characterize" him or her. The use, non-use, type, etc. of the car is just part of it, and may in fiction, as in real life, be contrary to the real character.
