My problem during the 2012 Presidential election cycle has been with the Republicans and their support of the richest one percent, to the exclusion of us ninety-nine percenters.
In this short tale, a very rich couple is retiring, closing their four-story mansion, and moving to smaller quarters. It leaves them with a problem, the servants. They have a couple who have been with them for many years, and don't want to just dismiss them and send them off to be old and homeless, so they do the right thing.
The right thing for the rich, of course.
