Have you noticed the usual bozo, plus maybe a few others, complaining that Elena Kagan is "elitist" because she attended good schools and had jhigh-level obs at good schools and in Washington.

They appear to be complimenting her when they imply those schools and jobs are elite, but they don't seem to know the difference between elite and elitist. Perhaps they would like her to take a job washing dishes for a year, so that she wouldn't be among the elite for a while.

Posters should say where they live, and for which area they are asking questions. I was born and then lived in Western Pa. 10 years
Indianapolis 7 years
Chicago 6 years
Brooklyn, NY 12 years
Baltimore 26 years
