London had wanted a solar array for years, but couldn’t afford it on his income as a merchant seaman — roughly $70,000 per year.

In Canada, the official poverty level is around $25,000 per year for single persons. It shows you how rich the Americans are compared to the rest of the world, even compared to another first-world country.

Hey don't lump the rest of us in with those Bay Area folks.

You know, I always thought the fences they keep building along the Mexican border should have been located a bit farther north.

You're on to something there.

Maybe we can get them to "Teach the Controversy " when it comes to the Mexico–United States border and roll back to 1836. If we play our cards right maybe we can throw in the Louisiana purchase as well.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
