This is another in a series of articles and editorials complaining about the very well off making out like bandits compared to the next step down. I first spotted these pieces about the same time The New York Times turned away from its fawning Bush support. You can't say NYT editors and reporters are dumb - once they convincingly showed that they as the upper-class were not getting the real bennies from their support they thought they would they reacted like a lover scorned. This article's tone is less resentful then some of the others and does not focus on tax policies.
As my brother says, what has been totally missing from these reports of "the haves" and "the have much mores" are what is happening to the "have nots." That is not the Times marketing demographic.
