Last night on CBS's Kid Nation, the show on which unaccompanied minors live in a ghost town, learn autocratic values and do immature things to each other with only an apathetic camera crew to watch, hilariously evil baby-oligarch Sophia filled a bucket with what looked like crap (really rotting vegetables, oatmeal and baked beans) and told everyone there was 50 cents in it. You could see the brief apprehension in those juvenile eyes as they weighed values: Dignity? Or some nickels? (Look fast, it was a very fleeting moment!)
