    I watched this 9-minute video from PBS a couple weeks ago, and found it fairly fascinating. I have nothing against people who have wealth, and would love to be wealthy myself [mostly to give me way more health care options that are currently unavailable to me because of limited funds].

    One of the reasons I'm posting this is because the "entitlement" that some of the wealthy have often translates into how they treat others. And I think this same dynamic extends to people that are healthy [rich in health] and translates into how they treat others [like pwCFS] who don't have the health they do. --- Anyway, not trying to start any kind of class dispute here. I've long had an interest in sociology, and thought I'd post a link for others who might also find this video interesting.

    It would be interesting to know the health status of those who park in handicapped parking spaces without a permit and those who accuse permit holders of not really needing them.
