Palo Alto, California. -- The start of any school year is a big time for the Crayola company, of course, as millions, probably billions, of crayons come rolling off the assembly line and are marched into those funny rectangular boxes with the flip top.This is the time of year Crayola always anticipates for its major breakthroughs, and this year is no exception, the crayon giant having announced last week a new box of politically correct crayons.(As a politically correct aside, is it a coincidence that Marlboro hard-pack cigarettes come with the same flip top as the Crayola box?

How big a piece: When John D. Rockefeller was alive, and worth $1.4 billion, his wealth was equivalent to one-65th of the nation's gross national product. But the richest man in the United States today, Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates, has only one-425th of the GNP even though he's worth $15 billion. That observation is contained in "The Wealthy 100," a book by Michael Klepper and Robert Gunther that looks at the 100 richest Americans. The booming U.S. economy has meant a billionaire's share of the pie has shrunk.
