Dave’s Diary: The Rich Come In All Flavors Including Smart And Dumb

The very rich are different from you and me,” said F. Scott Fitzgerald.  How different?  Well, Ivana Trump so abhors footprints on the carpet that she has the rooms in her home freshly vacuumed before she enters them.  Christina Onassis used to have Diet Coke flown to her by private jet.  You get the idea.  We wouldn’t think of any of that would we…even if we COULD afford it?  But one way they aren’t any different is in overall intelligence…common sense maybe,
