Top Income in U.S. is…Gasp!…Wash. D.C. Area

Federal employees whose compensation averages more than $126,000 and the nation’s greatest concentration of lawyers helped Washington edge out San Jose as the wealthiest U.S. metropolitan area, government data show.

The U.S. capital has swapped top spots with Silicon Valley, according to recent Census Bureau figures, with the typical household in the Washington metro area earning $84,523 last year. The national median income for 2010 was $50,046.

Oh, but they do so much for us! Think of the daily drama, the soap opera schadenfreude, the slapstick comedy! They make us laugh! They make us cry!

Indeed, if not for our selfless public servants in Mordor-by-the-Potomac, would we even find anything to talk about? Sometimes it seems not. Surely they’re worth whatever their employers choose to pay them!

    I once did a semi-serious study of per capita incomes of metro areas in several Midwest states. With too few exceptions to matter, the more tax money tossed around (mainly in public-university towns), the richer – and smugger, IMO — the place was.

    @ Jim, word.

    …as far as Biden goes, I honestly can’t believe they let that guy out in public…

    It does make you wonder, doesn’t it?

To the stake with the heretic!
