The credibility-challenged Levy and her editors need to work on their math skills. From 13 to 39 is a 200 per cent increase, not 300 per cent.

If the Sun's circulation numbers continue plummeting into the abyss, there will be a 100 per cent decrease in the number of words emanating from this ink-stained wretch. We can only hope.

Still, isn't the number of high rollers in the context of poverty, tax increases obscene?

How much is Sue Anne Levy paid to puke 750 words a couple of times a week while never lifting her fat ass? It is because they insist on employing boring, ideologues instead of writers that Sun Media can't scratch together a profit without pandering to strip clubs for advertizers.

In Toronto today, $100,000 does not make a high-roller. If you were to take the $100,000 disclosure amount introduced by Harris in 1996 and adjust it according to inflation, one would need to make approx. $121,000 today to make this "list". I wonder how many would be above the threshold in that case. Comparing $100,000 earners year-over-year without adjusting for economic realities is just like comparing apples to oranges. Sue Anne Levy would be better off challenging the provincial government on minimum wages and social assistance rates.

I'm pretty sure she thinks those are too high as well.

Doesn't Levy just write about whatever her uncle is lobbying for?

I nearly did a spittake when I read that. The thought of Ms. Levy even thinking about these two subjects still has me chuckling.

Judging from this other thread, she's probably done a great deal of "thinking" about related issues. I'm sure that RB's last post gets it about right.
