    Congratulations on being born into it and finding that you don't need or want all you've been handed.  

    Thank you for your plans to donate most of it to charity.  You're a credit to your upbringing and your Dad is right - he should pay more.  The government has been fixed to make sure he doesn't.  I hope he decides to donate to food banks and homeless shelters before he's too old to remember he has all that money he doesn't use.

    Webranding, I love your diaries, but you should use spell check and a grammar checker or just proof read your diaries before posting them.  Your spelling and grammar mistakes make you look like you couldn't possibly have graduated college, which throws your entire diary into question as to your education and privileged upbringing.

    Best. President. Ever.

      Not everyone of us has the same type of intelligence, Lulu.

      Some are thinkers, but not spellers; some are emoters, but not spellers; some are doers, but not spellers.  No one type of intelligence is superior to the others

      We spelling-capable folks are enriched by knowing thinkers and emoters and doers, however well (or not) they spell.  'Nuf said.

      •  I'm not making any allusions to intelligence. (0+ / 0-)

        I'm talking about EDUCATION.  How does one get a college degree without being able to spell and use the correct grammar?  These are just basic tools to communicate and make yourself understood.  This has nothing to do with superiority, either.  Just EDUCATION.  Period.

        Best. President. Ever.
