Provides lesson on money, values


Math lesson for the day boys and girls: If you earned $1 million per year after taxes, and never spent one penny (ignoring time value of money and compounding for sake of argument), it would take you 2,000 years to accumulate $2 billion. Or to say it another way, if Jesus had a brother who never died and earned $1 million per year he might be able to afford to purchase the Clippers. Please draw your own conclusions.
