    Sackler family who own Purdue Pharma. They deserve to shot up with their own drugs and left to fend for themselves without their fortune.

    I think many people could and would do this - if they saw the opportunity.
    Embarrassing to be found out - and sent to jail. Kids ridiculed for being too dumb to make it on their own.

    Not sure what this couple is worth - but are probably not anywhere near Brad Pitt. Many celebrities are not super rich.

    I remember hearing what a professional athlete I admired got paid - he was in Tour De France and had the yellow jersey for a couple of days at one point. His 'take home' pay was less than a new graduate. Lived a spartan life in cheap hotel rooms, training and racing all the time.
