They Think You’re Stupid  

December 1, 2006

By David Griffith

One of the worst things about American society is that we tend to equate wealth with intelligence. Anybody with half a brain can tell you it’s not true. I mean look at Paris Hilton. Heck, look at any Hilton since Conrad, the man who built the family’s wealth.
