I wonder if there was a difference in responses among the Boomers whose wealth was self-made and earned, compared to those who inherited those millions. I can understand the former group having a work ethic that encourages their children to go out and earn it as they did, but if it's wealthy Boomers who inherited all of theirs, being born on third base and acting like they hit a triple to get there, it's pretty lousy. Their right, yes... but lousy.
