Millionaires Everywhere

A new study reveals that millionaires are far more common than you might think. There are 9.3 million of them in the U.S. That's one out of every 10 households. Los Angeles County alone has 268,136 millionaire households. And this is excluding the value of the family's primary residence.

For all you millionaires, congratulations. I'm sure you have worked very hard to get where you are and you try to use your wealth responsibly. However I do have a few questions amid all this money.

  • Why is it that mentally ill people are standing on street corners begging for money?
  • Why are young women aborting their babies because they think they can't afford to raise them?
  • Why do our great cities have luxurious symphonies and opera houses while homeless people sleep in dingy shelters on cold nights?
  • Why do thousands of African children die every day from malaria, a disease we know how to prevent and cure?
I think these are good questions and unfortunately I don't have the answers. Leave a comment if you want to add to the list.
