Heir Apparently American

The Cobert Report prompted me to look up this NYT pice on a British aristocrat looking for an heir in America. Hey man, I can be there Thursday.

No, really, I can be there Thursday. Seriously.

It's not all fun and games - running an estate is expensive.

But worth noting in the piece are the aristocrat's appreciation for American energy and work ethic as it beats out British leisure time.

So, Americans, while you fantasize about what you could do with this kindly gentleman's estate, you should understand: he wants you because you're a sucker who will not take more than a long weekend until you retire.
