Twilight and Thebes, Morning in Beverly
Ill fares the land, to hastening ills a prey
Where wealth accumulates, and men decay.
(Oliver Goldsmith wrote the enduring comedy "She Stoops to Conquer." The graphic above is of Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. This morning's Cheery Thought was inspired by a morning drive through FameLand with my gonzo-economist guide. There are surprisingly few nice places to live amongst all the mansions.)
