Who wants to be a billionaire?!

You know the world is uninspired, and short of role models, when they say things all the time in the newspaper like "Billionaire Joe Soap bought a stake in Acme Inc." Can't they qualify the person with what he/she has done for the world, like hotel entrepreneur Joe Soap, or technology pioneer Jane Doe, or restaurateur Bill Jones ... Everything is millionaire this and billionaire that. Ask these clowns how they became a billionaire and you won't get a straight answer.

But that's not where it ends, because all we ever hear about is the stakes they buy - not what they have created. How boring!

Where are the role models these days?
