Wikipedia on "The Robber Barons"

Time to dust off Thorsten Veblen's "The Theory of The Leisure Class" for all you historians and history buffs out there.

Oh, and... can somebody restore The Miramar? Back to its old blue blood, blue-roofed state?

We liked it that way, too. It was quiet and chic.

(Overheard at luncheon, (this past June) by a longstanding very prominent writer at The Santa Barbara Writers Conference)

Less is more, sometimes.
