A new saying
We heard a new saying. "Riches are heaven sent." This apparently is a popular saying in Korea, but it does make one wonder. There are a lot of very wealthy people at the top of corporations, who don't appear very saintly. (Too many heads of these corporations have been indicted in some sort of corruption or scandal.) And if it is heaven sent, shouldn't it be right to share the wealth a little more? Perhaps the saying is more for the poorer classes who hope that heaven will send them riches (but more likely will send them to work for these corporations until the wee hours of every day).
