No, it's not "nuanced."

Absolutely awful article in the NYT about how sorry we should feel for all those poor slobs on Long Island, having to get by on a measly $380K.
“On Long Island, it’s barely a living,” said Steven R. Schlesinger, a lawyer and professional poker player. “In Plano, it’s a living.”
In fact, in Plano, asshole, the median household income is $84,000.

And the median household income in Suffolk County? $82,900. Oops.

I would be much more sympathetic to these one-percenters if they didn't sound like clueless versions of Marie Antoinette every time they opened their mouths.
