The Manhattan Institute's City Journal, amid a piece about 1199 SEIU headlined "The Union That Rules New York," offers this passage:
City council speaker and leader of the Progressive Caucus Melissa Mark-Viverito is a former organizer for 1199, which has played an active role in her career from the beginning. The union suggested that the Puerto Rican–born and Columbia University–educated heiress move from Greenwich Village to East Harlem to establish a political base.
The word "heiress" there struck me as a bit off key. If the point is that Ms, Mark-Viverito is somehow a hypocrite, or that the source of her wealth has somehow made her inconsiderate of non-inherited wealth, that's one thing. But without any further explanation, it's almost as if City Journal is faulting the council speaker for having inherited personal wealth that has elsewhere been described as "in the range of $1 to $2 million." It's not her fault, after all, that her parents accumulated some money and died before they had a chance to spend it all or give it all away to charity. Is there no publication that is able to refrain from joining in with what seems like the omnipresent hostility to families that have earned some money?
