It Pays to Be Rich

Last night a fireworks malfunction at WWE's Wrestlemania sent hot ambers into the packed crowd, injuring at least 40 people. The accident occurred near the finale of the event, held at the Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium.

This is further proof of the socioeconomic divide facing America today. If you're wealthy enough to attend a "real" sport's main event, such as the NFL's Super Bowl, a malfunction means seeing Janet Jackson's bare breast. However, if you live in a trailer and save up all year to see steroid-enhanced actors fondling one another in a ring, a malfunction equates to second degree burns and uncompensated medical bills.
