Shouldn't George Kelley be on there?

Nothing brings out my inner Robespierre like seeing this list! Especially the presence of four members of the Walton family in the top 14.

Interesting to note that entertainment and sports are not effective entrees to the upper echelons of the list. No one makes it on selling their "talent"; Spelberg and Lucas are on the list because they're producers, not because they're directors.

As Marx knew, ownership of the means of production is all. And being born into the right family matters no less than it does in England or Europe.

Perhaps the Koch brothers will p*ss away enough of their billions trying to elect right-wing reactionary nutjobs like themselves that they won't make the list next year.

/well, I can dream can't i?
