What do you mean by share his wealth? Like buy me a house? Why is he obligated to do that? I know I’ll never be homeless, or go broke because of medical bills, because he’s gotten me out of jams in the past. But the rest I’m perfectly capable of providing for myself and my family. It’s a weird American sickness that we think wealth is owed to us.

I’ve written for Vanity Fair, The NYT Magazine, and Playboy, among many others. I’m the author of 10 books, including my most recent, “Old Records Never Die”
