Big Mick...In my family we were taught to rise above the masses (which we did). We never mistreated anyone along the way, we sidestepped and avoided them. Interaction is inevitable but we don't have to go out of our way to do so.
CarolC...All my children are very prominent professionals who have earned their credentials by hard work and determination and by adhering to the family code. WE DO NOT have to associate with the masses the way most of you seem to want to do. As my old Daddy (the Colonel) always told us as we were coming up, "Watch who you associate with. If you play with shit, you are bound to get it on you." Enough said.
To the rest of you...Opinions are like assholes. Everyone is entitled to one.
