How the Other One Percent Lives

From the New York Times:

“'I got a little bit of income from my book, but I gave that all away,' Mr. Romney told reporters after an event here. 'And then I get speakers’ fees from time to time, but not very much.'"  (Emphasis added.)
The article continues:
"Financial disclosure forms that candidates are required to file annually shows that Mr. Romney earned $374,327.62 in speakers’ fees from February of 2010 to February of 2011, at an average of $41,592 per speech." (Emphasis added, queasiness suffered.)
Must be nice to be able to consider almost $400,000 "not very much."
