I Made Too Much Money Last Year

I'm done calculating my taxes for 2007, and I owe money to the government. I guess the Feds agree with the Bible that "unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required." 2007 was a great year for me in many ways, including financially.

My first thought upon seeing my tax bill was that I pay a lot of taxes. But shortly thereafter, reality set in -- I make a lot of money. To put things in perspective, a person earning $40,000 per year makes 110 times the money that someone living on $1-a-day makes. Pretty crazy. I'm rich. If you're reading this, you probably are too.
