According to the Contra Costa Times, the complex will house senior citizens and local workers and will include "a community center and pool, terraced gardens, an orchard and 'micro farm' and a barn." To be allowed to live there, workers will need to make less than 80% of Marin County's median income; seniors will sit somewhere between 30% to 60%. (Median income for the area is $90,839, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.)

80% of 90k is not dirt poor even in Marin County. I'm sure he'll charge more than $500/month there.

I don't know about "true Australian" but I'd imagine that Australians would take the most pride in successful Australians who are not just citizens but whose genius could be argued is in part due to having been raised in Australia during most of their formative years. It would be dumb for Americans to point to Einstein's US citizenship as evidence of America's greatness or as an example of what great people America produces.
