Social climbers and rich kids on the skids

There have been articles in the news section of the Wall Street Journal (it's a pay-for-play site, so no linky love here) and in the New York Times about some new studies that purport to prove that social mobility in America, one of the great strengths of our society, is becoming a myth. Alan Reynolds says that the newsies aren't telling the whole story. Big surprise there, huh?

minnesoter lyrics
heard a song to the radio today that mentioned minnisota (sort of)
which made me at once thing of the wombat - looked up the lyrics
and they are strange no question. The bigger question being what
some station was doing playing the Dandy Warhols...... Since HFS
went over to a spanish station, the radio spectrum in DC has been
very strange indeed.

Re: minnesoter lyrics
What, you mean they don't play alternative rock on DC101? Shokku!
After reading the lyrics, I think I like Sweet Home Scandinavia by Norselaw better...
