Who wants to be a millionaire?

Posted By on Fri, Sep 22, 2006 at 10:06 AM

A million is just chump change these days. The 400 richest Americans, as tallied by Forbes, are all billionaires this year for the first time. Many Waltons are on there by virtue of inheritance, but no other Arkies after the death of Win Rockefeller, who had regularly been a member of the 400. (We suspect at least a couple of moguls in Arkansas have assets in the billion-dollar range, but don't mind at all being overlooked. And, hey, if they are a hundred million or so shy, they'll still eke out a living.)
