True ........... but if these 85 people also work harder, the median income level might remain unchanged. Personally, I am working flat out and placed #109 on this list. Better invest some of my money stashed away in my home to try to get this money working for me.

Nice bit of WW II history.

WWII Veteran Aviator Bill Overstreet and His P-51 Mustang, “Berlin Express”

Quote:
We had the pleasure of speaking at length with World War Two aviator, William B.”Bill” Overstreet at Warbirds Over the Beach 2013, and as promised, we’re going to relate some of the compelling stories of his experiences during the war. While he is in his nineties, he is still sharp, and in talking to him, you can still see the spark of the twenty-something daredevil he once was in his eyes as he recounts his exploits, fighting the forces of fascism from the cockpit of a fighter plane over Europe all those years ago.
Amazing stories, including chasing a German pilot under the Eiffel Tower.

A wonderful treat for the fan - still, it saddens me to see how Ali has deteriorated. Horrible disease, Parkinson's.

I too was shocked to see how Ali had deteriorated as well. Very sad.
