Rich/Poor Blocks???...Sounds like the class envy drivel being spewed by Santaprompter...Does the site breakdown who worked two or three jobs to pay for the schooling that made it possible to be 'rich'???...Does it tell you whom the 'poor' people are that haven't had a job in years and/or refuse to get off their ass to find one???...How 'bout indicating how much of the rich people's taxes have gone to pay for section 8 flatpanels, androids, & designer sneakers...What about a map of where donations to the needy come from???...How 'bout a map indicating where most crimes take place???...Any and all comparison of rich vs. poor reeks of some sort of class envy...Damn those EVIL rich people!!!...Just what is this real purpose of this 'data'???...Well, at least the criminal element can now pinpoint the best areas to case...
