Creans' Mansion

February 06, 1988

I found the article "Home Wreckers" to be offensive. To glorify such conspicuous consumption with a featured story in these times of growing economic uncertainty, poverty and homelessness showed not only a cavalier attitude toward the less fortunate but also the embarrassingly vapid and shallow--although monied--lives of the Creans, who plan to live in only a small part of their mansion while the remaining 19,500 square feet just "sits there."

While the Creans play kissy-huggy with their friends, most of Orange County must be yawning, "Who cares?" This article would have been better entitled, "Life Styles of the Nouveau Riche, Egocentric and Not-So-Famous."
