A lot of gall. Pretty furniture.

I'm sitting here leafing thru the latest Thos. Moser catalog. Inset in the catalog is a letter/blurb from the founder raving about his recent trip to New Zealand, and how much he enjoyed visiting a nation full of people "unimpressed with displays of ostentatious wealth", with a strong unspoken negative comparison to his native United States.

That takes a hell of a lot of gall, coming from someone who's joyfully chosen livelihood consists of selling things like a four thousand dollar handmade cherry-wood dining room table. (Matching chairs are over a thousand dollars. Each.)
