Can You Spot the Billionaire?

Nora ______ e-mailed me earlier today; she was terse: "How do you sleep at night justifying policys [sic] that make incomes more unequal???"

My first response is to say "grow up."  As long as Mr. Smith earns his income rather than steals it, Mr. Jones ought not care.  Envy is an ugly sentiment, and becomes ghastly and dangerous whenever it is manifested in government policies.

But my more measured response is here.
