The Walrus - - LETTERS -

Mark King­well (“The League of Ex­tra­or­di­nary Ass­holes,” Jan­uary/fe­bru­ary) skew­ers the en­ti­tled and sug­gests that it is not only the wealthy who hold this su­per­fi­cial su­pe­ri­or­ity — it is any­one who lords it over oth­ers in an ex­pres­sion of per­sonal priv­i­lege. Un­for­tu­nately, the num­ber of such peo­ple seems to be grow­ing. So what do we do in re­sponse? Let us look to Kevin Con­nolly’s poem “Bril­liant Dis­guise” in the same is­sue: “Di­vide the salad, share the steaks.”
