Today was one of those days when I worked for about 12 hours at what I thought was a pretty high level of concentration, and all I could feel at the end of it was how stupid I must be to work that hard for so little money.

I’m trying to imagine what it would feel like to earn, say, $1,000 a day.  Would receiving that level of compensation presuppose that the force of my intellect would be more powerful?  Would I make more substantive and more complex decisions?  Would I be directly responsible for the well being of many more people?

I think the answer to those questions is “no.”

I am feeling an upwelling of revolutionary fervor!
