Not Surprised

I'm sure that I am not the only one that saw this coming:

The source told me that the two women who had made purchases with the [debit] card [distributed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina] each bought a signature monogrammed Louis Vuitton handbag in the $800 range.

"They didn't look destitute by any stretch. You would never have said, 'They must be one of the evacuees.' … The one that I dealt with yesterday was 20. She'll be 21 next month." The source described the reaction of other store-keepers in the mall - which includes luxury brands Ferragamo, Burberry, Judith Leiber and Neiman Marcus - as "outrage."
