Life in the cancer ward

Remember M. Todd Henderson, who was barely scraping by with his family income reported to be somewhere in the neighborhood of $400,000?  He apparently is still clinging tightly to his privilege.  Here’s a quote from a Bloomberg article about how the super rich are barely managing:

M. Todd Henderson, a University of Chicago law professor who’s teaching a seminar on executive compensation, said the suffering is relative and real. He wrote two years ago that his family was “just getting by” on more than $250,000 a year, setting off what he called a firestorm of criticism.

“Yes, terminal diseases are worse than getting the flu,” he said. “But you suffer when you get the flu.”

My second favorite quote from this article: “People who don’t have money don’t understand the stress.”

  1. That poor man! Just one year ago I was making <$20k per year having to deal with the likes of him, full time, no health insurance, an actual case of severe influenza, rent to pay, rice and beans daily, and a nice side of depression as a result. And to think there are many, many people with far less than what I had. Nooo, we couldn't possibly know what it means to suffer!

  2. How ignorant! Well i guess us poor people will just have to try our best to understand!
