The World's Third Poorest Man

Dilip D'Souza has a pithy rejoinder to last week's news that Lakshmi Mittal is the world's third-richest person:

Still, I wonder: If the world's third-richest man is Indian, I feel pretty sure the world's third-poorest man is as well. And the second- and the poorest are probably his neighbours. In fact, I am also pretty sure I saw this third-poorest man yesterday, a sad figure in loose pants and nothing else who, for no clear reason, runs up and down the street near where I live.

You might want to read the whole thing.
