  •  What it all reminds me of is even worse... (19+ / 0-)

    Accounts I've read over the years of the antebellum South, where the privileged class would discuss all sorts of business in front of the house slaves as though they were mere furniture.

    In fact, if memory serves, more than once information garnered in such a fashion made its way to Federal forces.

    Understand, I'm not comparing catering with slavery.  It's tough, occasionally dehumanizing, not generally wildly remunerative...I know because I've done my share...but its certainly thousands of miles removed from slavery.

    I'm speaking of the ignorance and blindness of those sitting at the big table, seemingly unaware that there are other human beings in the room.

    Some things change.  Some don't.
