A Piece of the Pie

There’s been a lot of discussion lately about wealth distribution and income inequality. A lot of folks are expressing righteous concern that there are many among us who are not getting their piece of the pie. In that spirit, I would like to point out a couple simple facts of life, and offer a couple simple solutions for how to deal with them.

Simple fact of life #1:
The only person that gets all the pie he wants is the baker.

Simple solution #1:
If you want pie, turn on the oven and grab a rolling pin.

Simple fact of life #2:
Every time a pie is cut, some crumbs are left on the plate. If you slice the pie into too many pieces, there are nothing but crumbs, and everyone goes without dessert.

Simple solution #2:
Refer to simple solution #1.
