No. 16 in Wealth, No. 1 in Chocolate

When Forbes came out with its annual report on the richest people in America, it was fun to see a photo by me of wealthy person #16:  Jacqueline Mars.  In case her name is not immediately familiar, think of this - her grandfather put the 'M' in M&Ms (and Mars candy bars).

Readers of the list could see that Mrs. Mars is also the wealthiest of 14 billionaires in the DC area, and third richest woman in America.  (The two women who topped her on the list also have a familiar surname: Walton, as in Walmart.)
