Beverly Hills, CA -- When I was little, I loved watching the Beverly Hillbillies,
falling in love with the Clampetts who struck oil, calling it black gold, Texas
tea.Since now they were rich, they
moved to Beverly Hills—swimming pools and movies stars.It was a natural for me to visit the shopping
capital of the world, Rodeo Drive, a three-block district of high-end stores
with designer names like Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Tiffany & Co. and
Chanel. But I never did run into the Clampetts, only tourists.
