Longing for Status

It's interesting to me how thoroughly the prime divider ethos is built into society, and what bizarre forms it takes once it is out of its natural habitat.

Check out, for example, the venti snooty latte that Micky Kaus came across, or the political spouse entitlement (no, it's not about Hillary), or, finally and most hilariously, the idea of "making ends meet" on a salary north of $400,000/year.

"We're entitled to not have to worry about that stuff, to have it all taken care of by retainers, dammit."
