RE: The 400
By Chris Elliott

The richest man in America according to Forbes magazine's 2010 annual list of the 400 richest Americans is Bill Gates. His fortune is estimated at $54 billion. This "self-proclaimed living god" (Mr. Hanger's phrase), through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has given away more than $24,000,000,000 since 1994 to help improve people's health and to ensure that all people have access to the opportunities they need to succeed in school and in life. He doesn't sound like the kind of dude who considers himself a "living god."
