I was doing work for my dissertation last week and this story popped up. More importantly, this photograph popped up. Isn’t that big smile on Ronnie’s face priceless? And look at ol’ Nan lending a hand! I wonder what Skipper’s face looks like?

As if it wasn’t abundantly clear to me at this point in my life, talk about money & power giving forth more money and power. George Romney the governor, Skipper Romney the millionaire businessman, Mitt Romney the billionaire businessman and near-President. Ah yes, and everyone in America has the same chance at success and wealth. Yeah right.
