class warrior…

weekend snapshot…friday night…dinner with friends…at a denver institution…the sons and daughters of the middle class…good people…good citizens…saturday…fundraising dinner party…for a denver institution…with the sons and daughters…and mothers and fathers…of the wealthy…good food…snappy conversation…followed by birthday drinks and conviviality with friends…too much whisky…too much…everything…sunday…a late rollover…and then…a one year olds birthday party…with the tattooed sons and dughters…and their sons and daughters…of farmers…bartenders…bikers…working class people…too hungover to be of any use…

that scene in high fidelity…the one where he says he’s not a class warrior…i get that…i don’t envy the rich…i don’t romantize poverty…and i cerrtainly don’t desire the middle…i grew up working class…i went to public…and private schools…i hve been homeless…by the time i got to the suburbs i had already been taugfht that the wealth of the world is temporary…the only things that last in life are…love…integrity…and hard work…these values are not restricted to any one class…and i could live hapy and well…without ever owning real estate…or needing tax shelters…or making nothing more than the minimum rage…
