From the truly nausiating world of people-with-more-money-than-God-who-should-learn-about-charity-or-savings-or-maybe-just-give-me-some-of-it, comes this column from Salon, on the hyperconsumeristic spending habits of very wealthy parents of overindulged infants.
My favorite quote? "...and what's more anxiety-provoking than, My god, I have a baby?"
Or maybe: "I have never seen a clearer acknowledgement that children have been reduced to accessories."
I believe you have to have a subscription to Salon to read the whole article, so I'll copy and paste it into my 'comments' section, in case you're interested. :)
And I know what you'll say..."My goodness, who cares." And you're right, except for the editorial comment that I feel sorry for these poor kids, and the parents should get a life.
