Whitacre: Your parents may say that they don't pick favorites, but that's wrong. Maybe they love you all the same, but there's always one that they love a little bit more, one favorite child. [...] Think about your siblings. See how they get away with all that crap that you used to get in trouble for? "Oh honey, it's not favoritism! We love you both the same, we were just young and inexperienced when we had you." LIES!!!
