A person is quoted in the New Yorker thusly: "When you think about it, five to eight billion dollars isn't that much.'
That is an amount beyond my comprehension. Five to eight... uh... wait, I have the five to eight part down ok. Five to eight dollars isn't that much. Billion... billion... can't do it.
She was talking about a sum backing a private charitable foundation (well, ok, Leona Helmsley's foundation for dogs).
I have nothing against the foundation and its goals, and the quoted person is not a foundation employee, but the founder of a New York non-profit hoping to make improvements in the way animals are treated (a non-profit that is in line for some Helmsley bux), but jF on a stick - to claim five to eight billion dollars "isn't that much" is insane.
