Forbes list of the world's richest people is out. In Texas, Michael Dell comes in first at $17.1 billion. Mark Cuban is 14th in Texas with $1.8 billion. Bill Gates tops the world's richest list with $50 billion. Interesting: The U.S. has the most billionaires, 371, followed by Germany at 55. New York is home to the most billionaires, with 40, followed by Moscow, at 25, and London, with 23. Of the 793 billionaires on the list, 452 are described as self-made, meaning they didn't inherit their money. Seventy-eight are women, up from 68 in 2005, Forbes reported.

And Bush wants to give these poor folks a bigger, permanent tax cut. I expect they just don't know what to do while waiting for their tax reductions.
