    this morning, Huffpost is front-paging a piece on Kim Kardashian's $2 million engagement ring. That's right, $2 million!

    Kim Kardashian’s Massive Engagement Ring...

    Ugh. Put aside the questions of whether Ms. Kardashian is even marriage-worthy, how long it will actually last, and when her 15 minutes of fame will finally be over.

    Instead, ask yourself how is this necessary? Does this practically obscene display of lavish self-indulgence really benefit anyone? What does it say about the huge disconnect between the affluent and the average in this country? This is what those tax cuts for the wealthy are really all about.
