    Our young Mr. Nuttingham approves of all the virtues that he lacks.

    So far, ear buds with Jarvis and notes from Pater and Auntie Nell. I hate to say it, but I’m beginning to think Young Master may be a fraud….

    With all the special notes, they might send him to a “special” school “by mistake”.

    @Sisyphos

    People with financial means often feel that their financial advantage makes them special, and give themselves a pass when doing things that they’d otherwise view as unfair. They fully believe that they posses attributes which are honorable (the money stacked up is a measurement of that, after all) and excuse any ‘cheating’ they do in pursuit of their goals.

    People with financial think they’re special? Say it ain’t so!

    So very true – however – dodge ball still sucks.

    People with less financial means do the same things, except that they use different rationalizations. Ethics and the lack thereof exist across the classes. Simply being poor isn’t proof of being ethical, although that is one of their delusions.

    Dodge ball was one of the very few sports I did well at. I couldn’t throw worth a darn, but being small I was a hard target to hit. And I moved like the wind.
    If ole Sedgie had been in my class (yeah right, I went to a very tiny country PUBLIC school in North Dakota), I would have made sure our little kickballs got switched with medicine balls.

    Dodge ball is fun when you have a cannon for an arm.

    Growing up in the seventies and eighties it was more a bloodsport in school closer to the movie Rollerball ( James Caan version).

    “People with less financial means do the same things, except that they use different rationalizations. Ethics and the lack thereof exist across the classes.”

    I realize that other-than-ethical behavior exists across the socio/economic spectrum, and used to think that it was pretty evenly dispersed. Some life experiences suggested that I should reassess the wealthy as being more prone to selfishness and self-centeredness, but I dismissed that as myopic perception on my part. But then, I started reading some research that suggested that rich people are more likely to be, um, phallus-like. The most recent was just a few months ago:

    “Simply being poor isn’t proof of being ethical…”
    -
    I quite agree, mythologizing poverty as being inherently better only makes for warm feelings and good stories.
    -
    “…although that is one of their delusions.”
    -
    Please don’t assume that this is exclusive to the poor. Delusion, just like ethical lapses, exist at all levels. Painting the poor as a self-deluded mob makes them sound monolithic rather than each being individuals who could and do escape such behavior.

    And then Sedgie’s eyes became bigger and bigger as
    his mouth formed a silent scream..The bowling ball was a blur
    thrown chest high….

    Seems Sedgie is well aware of his shortcomings.
