There is a story that Marie Antoinette, wife of King Louis XVI of France, was told that the people were starving. She tossed off a quick retort: "Let them eat cake!"

Marie and Louis did not remain the rulers of France for very much longer!

Ms. Sheybani clearly has good health insurance with a generous prescription drug benefit. Otherwise, she would have known that people with "low-paying" jobs cannot afford Prozac.
