A Personal Cosmic Game Report

The Rich Team is made up of individuals with a net worth of more than 15 billion dollars each (based on data provided by Fortune 500 Magazine from a 2000 survey of the richest people in the world.)

About 80% of this globe's population lives on less than one dollar a day. Being poor isn't a healthy way to live either. An estimated eight million children die each year from treatable and preventable diseases. Being poor they have no access to vaccinations and other medical care. The social darwinists notwithstanding, on the cosmic baseball field, The Poor outfoxed The Rich. Little, malnourished Wee Jones pitched a fine 3-run game as every Poor batter except Python Jones got a hit. The five-run ninth inning that The Poor posted almost seemed to be more about rubbing salt in a wound then anything else. And when the rich men stomped off the field at the end of the game, one could nearly feel the tension and the hostility between the beaten billionaires and the victorious poverty-striken.
