The year is less than a week old and already I have been visited by good fortune. At least 3 acquaintances of mine (in London, Ghana, and Sierra Leone) have died suddenly and left me at least $10 million dollars. Of course it may be a case of mistaken identity, as I've never heard of any of them, but I'm not telling them that. If my run of luck (in the shape of deceased people I've never met) continues at this pace I should have about half a billion dollars in bank by 31 December 2008.
