Veteran television news correspondent Eric Sevareid says the rich really are different from the rest of us.

"Fitzgerald was right and Hemingway wrong," he says in an upcoming segment of American Public Radio's Marketplace series."The rich are different. For one thing, they are never in a hurry; somebody is always waiting for them or upon them. And while money doesn't mean happiness, it does mean you can be unhappy in comfort."

The program recently hired Sevareid, 78, to deliver such commentaries on business and economics every other Monday. His first one was this week.
