On Ask Polly: I Feel Guilty About How Absurdly Rich I Am!

You don't have to apologize for your wealth. It's not something you chose, and it doesn't make you a better or worse person. I also have two degrees and no loans, and I'm fairly open about this because I feel like I'd be taking credit for things I didn't earn if I pretended I had lots of debt (the default). It seems pretty disingenuous to lie about your wealth to peers because here's a hard truth - many of them had to work a lot harder than you to get where you are. You say you wish you didn't have all that money, but are you also assuming that you would've accomplished the same things? Hard work can get you far, sure, but privilege definitely helps.

On 'Atlas Shrugged': Who Is John Galt's Chiropractor?

I haven't read any Rand and will probably only read Atlas Shrugged if I live for a very long time. THIS, though, I enjoyed very much. (As a side note, is it actually worth reading? I feel like I'm as familiar with its essence as I will ever need to be.)
