The lead from the Associated Press' story about Dallas buy-and-sell billionaire Sam Wyly, out promoting his book Entrepreneur to Billionaire: 1,000 Dollars & an Idea: "Sam Wyly went from growing up in a house without electricity to amassing a fortune estimated at $1.2 billion, and he says anyone can follow in his footsteps if they work hard enough and watch for opportunities." Tax shelters and friends in high places don't hurt either. Regardless, as the stock market begins its freefall this morning to God knows where, perhaps today is the day to begin living the Wyly way, beginning with the inspirational video and the audiobook, read by the clearly fake-named Phil Gigante. C'mon, you've got to be kidding. --Robert Wilonsky
