"It is said that ten percent of the population control ninety percent of the wealth. While I don't personally know if that is actually true or not it does seem so. At any rate it is an observed fact that there are those with and those without. Those without usually out numbering those with.

"In my beloved world of manipulating electrons to create pretty pictures on crystal screens it seems that the situation is quite reversed. Those with are out numbering those without. Is that really true or is it simply a matter of perception? I know of quite a few people who do not have much yet are far happier than those who have a lot.

"Unfortunately, in this world it is perception which matters most and those who have everything perceive those who have little as second rate. Now to be classed as second rate by anyone grates. I mean, what right do other people have to judge us and find us wanting? Yet that is exactly what people do, right or wrong, it is a fact of life."
