Semantics are so interesting - in my "language" my differentiation between rich and wealthy seems to run counter to that of others - in my language, wealthy is so much more than rich ... the word wealthy suggests not only deep pockets (usually worn by more thant one generation), but social status, connections, power; and, oddly enough, in my books the "truly wealthy" are seldom if ever ostentatious - the state of being wealthy is not a novelty to them, so often they lead somewhat ordinary, albeit very comfortable (and the word "comfort" in this instance, indeed lends a whole new meaning to this seemingly humble word), lives. The rich may have more $$$$ - but may lack class and gentility.
