On a slight tangent:  I'm still confused about why so many feel compelled to 
prefix "elite" with "liberal".  If this were really about anti-elitism, we'd 
see just as much silly spewage toward buffoons like Trump (who just knows 
better -- trust him -- he's the only one who can make america great again).  
Despite my confusion, I'm inclined to believe it's because only really lazy 
people yap incoherently about "elitism."  The rest of us work our butts off to 
specialize ... elite machinists, elite cowboys, elite bow hunters, elite beer 
drinkers ...  I am an elite.  But I'm not a liberal.  So, the bias(es) inherent 
in articles like this are blatantly obvious.
