    George Bush Sr. was High WASP; George W. Bush was assuredly not. Your thoughts?

    And I’d love to hear your comments on the differences between New England, New York and Philadelphia High WASP.

    Apologies for the double post.
    Is your blog meant to be
    “A midlife of privilege” or
    “Amid life of privilege”?
    Or did you cleverly plan it both ways?

    I enjoy your writing immensely.

    Um, since my mother really does always say, “A simple thank you will suffice,” well, yes, I did plan it both ways. Or more accurately, I enjoyed that both meanings were possible. Thank you. I will have to research the differences between New England, New York, and Philadelphia. What I know I know from legend and hearsay, and some family experience. I need to expand my knowledge. Now if you want the details on SF Bay Area High WASPs, I can get pretty granular without cracking a Google.

    Your point on those we *don’t* see on magazine covers, for the most part, is spot-on Miss LPC. We share the shame of Starpulse, akin to our red face upon visiting GossipGirlInsider.

    GossipGirl. The most delectable form of degraded High WASP:).
