A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking pocket change

From a blog piece by Henry Blodgett on Yahoo's Daily Ticker, explaining a jury verdict under which which Samsung pays Apple a billion dollars:
The monetary damages here, though large, are almost irrelevant. Apple already has more than $100 billion of cash, and Samsung will barely miss $1 billion.
And I still see homeless people stooping in the gutter to pick up a nickel.

Oh how the Robber Baron CEO's live! There are 8 homeless people that live in the woods near my work building. And that's only what I see. They are invisible to most of society and no one talks about this true crises.One of the homeless is a veteran. It's heartbreaking. Great Post! Not one politician is talking about poverty.
