Amazing fact of the day

According to the Federal Reserve Board, approximately 649,000 U.S. households have a net worth of at least $10 million.

There are approximately 2.5 people in each household, which makes this the rough equivalent of every person in Phoenix, Arizona (the country’s fifth largest city -- itself an amazing fact) living in one of these super-rich households.

That would be the place to be the exclusive distributor for Botox, Callaway or Lexus.

Magazines: The cover story in the current issue of FORTUNE provides a very interesting profile of Melinda Gates, the $100 billion woman. She is, of course, Bill’s wife, but despite this very public role I’ve never read anything with any depth about her before. The article offered real insight into someone who now influences the lives of millions of people.
