Just $30 million...

I still can't help thinking about this.

At church on Sunday the Pastor mentioned a real estate ad he'd seen during the week. For a lake front home on Lake Tahoe. With 11 bathrooms, and 2 half-baths. For $30 million. Wow. Just wow.

His point was to illustrate what else could be done with that much money. Opening 30 medical clinics in Africa. Providing 38 million children with AIDS meds. Etc.

I mean, I do spend money. On unnecessary things. But I still can't imagine spending that much money on a house when you could do so many other things. And heck, if you're that vain, you could name all the clinics after yourself.
