    Today I shall discuss the media promotion of the backside of Pippa, Kate's sister, though I have already forgotten their maiden name. I want to say Greenaway, but I know that's not right.

    Every time Thom says the phrase, "Millionaires and billionaires", I agree with him, but the words aren't exactly hypnotizing.  Please consider using the phrase "the  rich".  Each one of us knows exactly what "the rich" actually means (at least we think we do).  "The rich" packs more punch, whether it's said in front of a mirror or on the radio.

  • My two dads

    I am 49 & I had a dad & a stepdad. Both could afford a house with a housewife in it, and neither had to bother with college. One was a convicted fellon who did not make it to high school.  Although I have had it better than some younger than me, I cannot touch the stadard of living achieved by my two dads even with my Associates Degree. Is my story typical or atypical ?
