I agree with Shay on the 'new money' issue and the unintended tackiness that sometimes accompanies said folks! I grew up in a comfortable background but frankly, I eschew much of the pretentiousness of folks around me. I've gotten quite comfortable with a circle of folks who are down to earth and come -as you- kind -of -people. There are times when I can't avoid situations like the one you described, Rootz. However, I do my best to avoid them when I can. Michael's family...

In reality, he is way too immature to handle college and what a waste of funds it would be to find out the hard way. Why can't college be universally free??? I am sorry to hear about your ongoing pain. Again, I think because you had a double whammy, you're...
