Thumbing through a new tome by John C. Bogle, I came across this:
While attending a party at the Shelter Island estate of a billionaire hedge fund manager, novelist Kurt Vonnegut pointed out to Joseph Heller, the author of Catch 22, that their host had made more money in one day than Heller's phenomenal best-seller had earned during all the years it had been out.
Heller smiled at Vonnegut and said: "Yes. But I've got something he'll never have. Enough."
Which crystallizes for me what's been wrong with the country (and world?) over the past several years.
We were driven over a tall cliff by folks who could never, no matter how rich they became, have enough.
