Save for the terrible title, some of the best writing I've ever seen on a topic that is largely ignored in modern society.
First Family's attorney, Republican state Sen. Scott Talley, declined comment, saying Meadows and the home are focused on addressing several pending complaints.

A full read of the article takes no more than 5 minutes but it is thorough and ideas based on this could turn into a great fiction bringing more awareness to this side of capitalism that has run off the rails in so many communities.
