On the plus side the temperature dropped before this Elizabeth Warren rally began so it isn’t 100F any more. On the other hand it was supposed to start 45 minutes ago and there’s no word on how much longer it will be delayed.
If someone had the fortune to be able to save 100% of a six-figure salary (say, $100,000/year in this case), it would take 10 years to save up 1 million. It would take 10,000 years to save up 1 billion.
