The torments of the privileged

I get a kick out of reading about the torments of  the rich and prestige-status-and-name-dropping-obsessed Anne-Marie Slaughter and her husband as they strive to tell us what deeply sensitive and sacrificing Yuppie parents they are. Maybe if Ms. Slaughter would less time promoting herself in the media as a world-historical expert on upscale-family values she'd have more time to spend with her teenage sons.

Her latest book is Unfinished Business: When Working Families Can't Do It All. This follows her famous magazine article "Why Women Still Can't Have it All".

Who can -- even someone with all the spoiling privileges that Ms. Slaughter has had?

Will she protest along these lines when the Grim Reaper shows up at her doorstep?
