Dear Bird Talk,

While your attempt was to provide humour with your recent issue, someone needs to check the math. Forty million people at one million each is a lot more than forty million dollars. In fact, the number is so large we would be in the deepest crisis imaginable. Having stated the above, I do enjoy your publication.

Ed: My calculator does not go that high! The best I could figure is that $40 trillion is the right number and this means that the joke does not work properly, although the sentiment was right on. Mr. Roberts was the only reader to mention this and he is to be congratulated!
