Someday Moosie's name will be on this list:
New York-AP -- More people are getting into a very exclusive club.

Harry Potter creator J-K Rowling and the founders of the Google search engine are among more than 100 brand-new billionaires.

Forbes magazine's annual list of (b) billionaires is the longest it's ever been. Some 587 billionaires from around the world are listed, up from 476 last year.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has kept his spot as the richest billionaire, for the tenth year in a row. Super-investor Warren Buffett is right behind him.

As usual, older, married men dominate the list. Only 53 women and 24 single people are counted among the billionaires.

Only six people dropped off the list, including Robert Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television. He lost some of his fortune in a divorce settlement.

Gee, thanks, Nut. :rolleyes: Some things are better off dead. ;) Whiskers, I'm sure you're on the list; why don't you use some of your billions to buy a copy of Forbes and see? :D
