A Mind That Suits What doesn't kill me, makes me laugh... usually.

A Mind That Suits is working on Something Big, and will just offer a few thoughts now and then, such as those inspired by this weekend.

He spent a few days in the company of some of the richest people in the world. They don't eat. George Orwell commented on this 60 years ago, when he served on his neighborhood defense team in World War II: the one real class difference (as opposed to class distinction, he emphasized), was that the upper classes on the whole were thinner and looked ten years younger than their working class counterparts. Habits of self-restraint are indeed a part of making it in a middle class society.

Which fact was confirmed by a stylish-looking young co-worker, who could not wait to leave (thus cutting short his income) so that he could stop waiting on rich people and hit the clubs, where he was sure to spend at least as much money as he earned on his truncated shift. And this was Sunday night.

Some things in life really are unalterable.
