    What we consider living is luxury in the rest of the country and the world. I remember reading why some Wall Street types can only get by on 50 million dollars a year: mortgage on the requisite multi million dollar apartment, private school for the children, tutors, nannies, Caribbean vacation home. None of this is necessary to live, but it is considered the 'cost of living' for Wall Street.

    My only point is that our standard of living is a lot higher than much of the world, no matter how you figure the cost of living.

    I personally feel blessed to have what I have.
