    it doesn't really bother me that the CEO of XYZ Corp. makes a bazillion dollars a year.

    Fine. Whatever.

    But what does bother me is if someone working an honest job is unable to live with dignity and grab his/her slice of the American Dream.

    I don't want a private jet or a fleet of Cadillacs or a car elevator, even if I had the money.

    But I do want to know that if I'm a hard-working, law-abiding citizen, I'll be able to send my kid to college and have a roof over my head without being in debt up to my ears.

    How about I believe in the unlucky ones?
