In the earliest days of patrician society, fortune and breeding were the only things that could guarantee one acceptance. And then somewhere along the line celebrity became sufficient to earn one a pass. Sometime after that, interestingly, becoming a walker, or an escort, opened the gates. And now, of course, there’s the professional houseguest, an entity very similar to and occasionally indistinguishable from the walker.

Nice work if you can get it, and if you get, won't you tell me how.....
