Another reason why you're not rich & famous

This has got to be the stupidest excuse yet for why some people are go-getters and others are lazy slackers.   It doesn't seem to have been a problem for Donald Trump, Donald Duck or Charles DeGaul.

Oh boy, another reason for lazy bums to say, "It's not my fault I can't hold a job, my parents named me Dave."  Pshaw.

Not to mention that Albert Einstein flunked out of school.
"It is remarkable that what we call the world...in what professes to be true...will allow in one man no blemishes, and in another no virtue."--Charles Dickens

One of the best and brightest, and also among the most outgoing, students in my college class was a young lady named Christine.  I guess this blows that theory. ::)
