37.      To tell you the truth, it is very difficult for me to sympathize with the Socs in the least bit. I think, when it comes right down to it, the Socs are very spoiled and whiney. When you are filthy rich, as the Socs are, you can do so much good. You can help those, like the Greasers, who don't have money. But no, the Socs only care to be bullies and whine about how they have it bad too. I don't buy it. I don't think it's fair that they have all the breaks simply because they are rich and are from the "Westside." Even that Cherry Valance irritates me with all her complaining and the superior attitude she takes on with Ponyboy around Bob and Randy. So no, I don't feel that the Socs have it rough, they could contribute so much to the neighborhood instead of being greedy, mean, whiney kids.
