Actually, the "middle 20%" is more like the "lower 95%".
The gap between the top 5% or so (and really, the top 1%) and the rest of us is still pretty astounding.
Not that I'd mind being quite a few points higher than I am now. . . it would be nice to, every once in a while, get ahead on bills, take the wife and kids out to a decent restaurant, and maybe, just maybe go on a real "Hollywood" vacation to an actual resort. . . .as opposed to a week off at home, doing chores during a "staycation". . . .
