Eat the Rich

Sorry to use such a tired quote from Fitzgerald, but "[l]et me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me." From yesterday's print Journal:
The race to build the most exclusive resort club has reached a new extreme: a $10 million membership fee.

In the next few months, the Montana-based Yellowstone Club, a private ski and golf community, will start marketing what's believed to be the world's most expensive resort club. For a one-time fee of between $4 million and $10 million, depending on the sign-up date, members will get to stay for a set period of time at a castle in England or Ireland, a villa in Tuscany, a private golf course in Scotland and several other beach, spa and golf properties around the world. They'll also get to use one of the club's two mega-yachts and a fleet of private jets.
Didn't Jesus talk about the rich man, the eye of the needle, and...why do I even bother. Hey superrich: Eat, (binge) drink (cosmos), and be merry, and then drive home along that dark dirt path lined with trees to your spacious time share mansion.

I'm such a hater.
