The fall of kings

The immeasurably wealthy commit suicide upon losing their (b/m)illions. How can they suddenly live a life so unfamiliar? Go through the pain of losing it all? (And being like the rest of world.)

I wonder how Michael Vick will take to construction work. What is it like to think yourself a god, only to wake up a mortal?

There are millions in the world who live on considerably less than what most consider my humble salary. But could I live a life of peace and contentment if I woke up tomorrow to find myself suddenly with less than I have? Less money. Less respect. Less carefree.
