My friend, Paul, and I often talked about how the few bright, sophisticated ones could have anything in the world they wanted if they only had the appropriate skills. The rest would just disappear into society, unknown, unacknowledged.

We settled on creating a small (200 girls) college in Switzerland, designed much like a traditional finishing school, but without the historic hereditary upper class basis. The college would be supported by a few Saudis who would get to meet the graduating class every year.
As you might guess, we never did it.
