Those popular kids you envied in school? Now they're the rich girls you envy. A 50-year long survey shows that students who are popular make more money.

Besides blatantly attempting to write about something that has zero merit, this wasn't even funny. It's, like, ohmygod, so totally dumb.

The subtitle "now they're the rich girls you envy" and the whole piece talking from the fake point of view of a former high school popular girl makes no sense for this article since it was only MEN that were tracked. You find out in the last sentence that they did not measure anything but white men in the 1950s. This is the worst article I've ever read in the Star Tribune because it is unfunny, and completely written from a point of view (with headline) that is counter to the information given. How did this pass muster???

Doesn't fit my school's/circle's circumstances at all. Couldn't have had a more cold familial upbringing with divorces, remarriages, moving around, you name it. Living with single parents at times, and while I wasn't prom queen (and never would have wanted that pressure anyway) was friends with everybody, grew up and make a lot of money. Education and expectations were what was consistent with my friends despite our crazy circumstances, NOT popularity.
