For the poor always ye have with you

Interesting interactive graphic from the NYTimes on the topic of class differences. The first tab lets you see where you fall in the grand scheme of things. Then the other tabs offer other info.
Check out the poll results on some of those questions, broken down by the income of the respondents:

How would you describe your health?
18% of those making under $30K said their health was excellent. 55% of those making over $150K said it was excellent.

How important to you is having faith in God? 79% of the <$30K's said it was Very Important, compared to 54% for the >$150K's.

If we extrapolate these trends, it is clear that Bill Gates is both immortal and the Antichrist.
