The richest man n the world according to Forbes Magazine is still, my idol, Bill Gates. I am glad. I am proud of him. We have a common interest: we both read and liked Carl and Jerry stories in Popular Electronics. That makes us soul brothers, in some small way.
But he is losing ground to a Mexican media Mogul who is only a few billion dollars behind him. Alas, Bill, go, go, go.
I am not sure I would want to be the richest man in the world, nor even the second richest. I could use a few bucks more to support my obsessions though.
