Today's Oneword - Princess

In America, we have the belief that you can grow up to be most anything. But not King, Queen, Prince, or Princess. That's something you'd have to be born into, and we don't have inherited royalty. What we have, however, is inherited money, and that pretty much leads to the same end.

(Although I didn't write this in my Oneword post, America also has a rich tradition of inherited fame, which is very closely related to inherited money. How else would Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana or Paris Hilton have any significance whatsoever?)
