Only little people pay taxes & wait their turn

Some researchers have once again come with a well, duh finding about the sense of entitlement of the wealthy.
The rich really are different from the rest of us, scientists have found — they are more apt to commit unethical acts because they are more motivated by greed.

Read it all here in the LA Times. Now, this study comes from UC-Berkeley, so is as suspect as a NYTimes immigration story, but – let's face it – the findings accord with my observations of life, good old-fashioned Anglo-Saxon empiricism. Hey, the way to get rich is by going light on the pot, cheating, chiseling, trimming, constantly seeking advantage. You may be contemptible, but you'll be rich.
