Nobody Asked Me, But (Redux)...

I heard this amazing statistic this morning on the radio and had to go dig it up for you:

Asked about the likelihood that they themselves will become rich, Americans surveyed seemed to be slightly less optimistic than they were in 1990. Twenty-eight percent said it is at least somewhat likely they'll become rich, down from a peak of 34 percent in 1996.

You can fool some of the people all of the time, and we've scientifically determined that's about 30% of us.
