RIP: Brooke Astor

The Paris Hilton of the jazz age, apparently. Famous for being famous and inheriting a lot of money, of which, to her credit, she gave away quite a bit. I knew the name but not much about the woman. However, this part of her story stood out to me:
She briefly attended the Madeira School in McLean, Va., before dropping out to pursue her social life full-time.
Now that's what I call a party girl. Who needs school when you can have the chance to marry up? Of course, nowadays, school is your social life. By the way, I pass by the Maderia School every day on my way to work.
