Hmm. But even if we do cast our proletarian net a bit larger, enough to
bring in the $75K (!!! Is this really possible?) school teachers and what
not, we're only adding a relatively few folks, aren't we?
(And while I'm loathe to do anything that might seem pro-professor,
it's true that *most* of them don't pull down that much, isn't it?)
I mean, the median household income for a family of four is still some-
where around $33-35K, right?
