In pop culture, what's grabbing our attention are the bad girls.
In addition to Ocean's 8, there are also the 3 Suburban Detroit housewives who find themselves financially challenged. The solution is to turn to a crime, ranging from robbing a grocery store to money laundering. That's the television hit "Good Girls" which will have its second season this fall.
What the bad girls teach us is the value of team work.
Each member of the rogue band respects the expertise of the others. They recognize that to achieve their goal they have to mesh their strengths and overlook annoying weaknesses. Also, just as in big-time sports, they are totally in there for both the game and for each other.
Sure, it's unfortunate that there is some glorification of crime versus championing plain-vanilla hard work at jobs which don't break the law. But perhaps a piece of that is what more of us have to get smart about. The way the world works is through angles, not in a linear manner.
Poet Emily Dickinson put it this way: Tell the truth but tell it slant.
