Those are some incredible statistics. It's interesting to note who those
top 20 people represent as well. While I don't know everyone on the list
and who they represent I know most of them.
I know this list has definately played a positive role at times, and maybe
that is enough to justify its existence, but it does make you step back
and wonder a little.
