Mr. 200 Million

Bobby Woo, an Atlanta lawyer, may be just your average American, but he's also Mr. Two Hundred Million. No, he's not billing $200 million a year. Rather, as this article reports, Woo, who was born in 1967, was heralded by Life magazine as the 200 millionth American -- a milestone gaining new attention as the United States  approaches the 300 million mark, which is expected to take place this coming Tuesday.

The article explains that Life magazine visited Woo in kindergarden to "keep up with the milestone child. His parents explained that he was receiving all this attention  because he was 'supposed to represent the average American.'"

Of course, turns out Woo isn't so average after all. Today, he's a partner at King & Spaulding, where his firm bio shows that he received a BA and JD degrees (with honors) from Harvard, followed by an 11th Circuit clerkship and recognition as a rising star of the Georgia Bar.  No mention, however, of his 200 million milestone.
