Filthy Rich Now Only "Slightly Dirty" Rich


















It's a sad, sad day in this country when rich people have to open up their country clubs to commoners because of economic downturn. And when you start letting *those people* into your club, you can bet things will change. For starters, say goodbye to $30 filet mignon on the dinner menu and hello to "super nachos".
Last month, Uniontown Country Club opened its dining room to the public for the first time -- a change that has blurred the social hierarchy in this mountain town south of Pittsburgh. The economic crisis and shifting demographics have left Uniontown, population 13,000, without enough wealthy residents to sustain a private club, so now UCC caters to the everymen it was created to exclude.
You can't see my face right now, but there's a single tear rolling down my cheek.

Think I put in "preppies" because "rich people" and "country clubs" didn't yield anything usable.

"Filthy rich" and Pittsburgh? You had me going for a minute. I didn't realize it was April Fool's day.

I wouldn't want any of "those" people in my country club. They would destroy everything with their foul smelling children and outrageous fashions. They would probably try to buy tee time with food stamps or some such nonsense. Quite the fiasco!

And by "those" people I mean the ugly.
