So, we all know that Bill Gates is the richest man in America (and one of the wealthiest human beings on the planet), but who exactly is the richest man in Louisiana?  Well, a new list from Parade.com shows the richest man in every state, and Louisiana's fattest cat is...

...New Orleans Saints owner, New Orleans Hornets owner and car dealer Tom Benson.  Worth about $1.3 billion, according to Parade, Benson was the only sports team owner to make the list.  It should be noted that the list isn't necessarily a a list of the 50 richest people in America, since some states may have more than one billionaire.  Still, making the list is pretty impressive.

And at least we're doing better than Mississippi, Delaware, Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, New Mexico, Utah or Wyoming.  Those states don't have any billionaires hanging around.  The best they can dig up are multi-millionaires.  So sad, isn't it?
