Sometimes I miss having powers... Oh. Oh! I know what this is! This is peer pressure! Any second now you're gonna make me smoke tobacco and--and have drugs!

Greece's financial crisis threatens to take down all of Western civilization - a civilization they themselves founded. A rather tragic irony - which is something they also invented. - Jon Stewart

As a sociological class that identifies common traits. "Middle class" is too broad and ill-defined to mean anything in particular.

In general I guess, but in the context in which it is being used in the article that started this discussion it's pretty clearly defined (complete with charts!) and meaning something very particular.

In fact, Ruby Whateherface is pretty much speaking to the "academic class" in her work.
