I came across the following quiz and thought it put things in perspective fairly well. I don't know who the author of this was, but I like it. Your thoughts? Take the following quiz: 1. Name the 5 wealthiest people in the world2. Name the last 5 Heisman trophy winners.3. Name the last 2 winners of the Miss America contest.4. Name 10 people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer prize.5. Name the last 6 Academy Award winners for best actress.6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners. How did you do? The point is, none of us remember all the headliners of yesterday.
