LOL -- Here're the tax press release from 10/2000.

<< They owed $100 for the food that they shared. .... The first four men paid nothing at all. The fifth, grumbling about the unfairness of the situation, paid $1. The sixth man, feeling very generous, paid $3. The next three men paid $6, $12 and $18, respectively. >>

Lessee... According to the table:

* The first five men make less than 25.5K apiece. They actualy paid $.50 total.

* The tenth man makes more than 83K. He didn't pay $18. He paid sixty-five dollars.

<< But when the bill came, there was not enough money to pay for it. >>

Of course, there was money! Who do you think got his estate taxed after he was lynched? (:

Washu! ^O^
