American Dream, 1990s Version



To the editors:

As your paper has a large base of yuppie readership it might be noteworthy that Chicago yuppies are joining Amway in record numbers.

The Law of Reality (What is is) has begun to hit home. For the most part we have plateaued at our company positions, our savings are scarce when one considers that 35 percent of our retirement income will be serviced by Social Security in which we certainly have no faith. We can either stop dreaming or do as many Ethnics have proven, chase the American Dream with the best available vehicle. Network marketing is the middle American tool for a future based on time and financial control.
