1% rag

No ... Not a Ragtime Rag.
That's for you 99%ers.
This rag, magazine, is for the 1%ers. Brought to ya by Hearst
The ones that have two lives. A town life. A country life.
With a periodical to help them juggle it all with grace and élan.

Rosamund Pike Cover Couture Jason Wu lace top $1885, blah, blah, blah
The 1%ers you see on tv? They're at work. Senate Hearings. Gala Events. Fundraisers. All so much piffle and pish posh. My guess is they can't wait to get home ... to the cabin. Slip into some casual Dior and muck about just like the little peeps.

This months articles of note;
  • The Rich and The Recession, what they can't afford anymore
  • HELP! 10 lifesaving tips from the worlds top butler
  • Oh, the Places You'll Go! A Light-Hearted Guide to Minimum Security Federal Prisons
If you're thinking of re-careering,  this ad popped out at me ...
Can you even imagine the difficulty of finding estate managers for Ted's Spreads?

A Brit years ago related to me ...
Ya know the difference between a Brit and a Yank? A Brit will see a Rolls Royce and say "someday we'll bring down the rich" and a Yank will say "someday I'll be rich and have one of those"

I'm not sure how wide-spread that aspirational spirit currently is.

I don't be hatin' on the 1%ers. It would be civil though, if we at least had the appearance of everybody having to play by the same rules. I'm certain the last thing the T&C set want is incivilities.
