mid $X,000 to $XX,000 would be extra damn good money for someone to make. Does this sort of money only come to the likes of giant well established sites, or can it happen in the right industry?

At 10k, this is 120k per year. 9000 publishers at this amount would use up all the income. Now there are many publishers who earn big bucks, so this would cut down the number earning over 120k. At the other end, there are plenty earning less than 10k, so this would cut down the Fedex club even more.
Then there are the ad networks who would chew up a large chunk of the budget too.
My guess? Less than 1000 publishers get over 10k, and under 100 get more than 40k.
I am a lot less worried about Google running out of money for good publishers than I am with advertisers getting scared off by spammers and scammers. If Google keeps things profitable for the advertisers, both the pool of advertisers and their budgets for advertising are almost certain to increase.
Google's willingness to allow three ad units per page suggests that they have (or perhaps had prior to Sept. 1) more inventory than they could use up with their SERPs and AdSense impressions. That's a good sign for publishers.
I remember someone posted here some weeks ago that they know a guy making 1k/day with a single site with a single page which just have some funny image! ...Now thats impressive :)
It may well be true, but I'd say that's the exception to making $10k a month, rather than the 'norm' - whatever that may be.
I'd like to see his face if/when his one site one page gets knocked out of the serps...
I am again saying this and dont ask me details , there are many guys who make more than 10k/month in adsense including some amateurs :)
If you're smart enough to have a site making 10K a month, then you're smart enough to know that site could be gone any minute, and you're smart enough to build 10 or 100 more sites.
Truer words were never spoken. Never keep your eggs in one basket. If you have one site making 10K a month, why not diversify and try and get 10 sites making 10K a month ;)
Now that I think more about it - why would anyone create a single page website to catch all the traffic, rather than a bunch of pages/sites?....in other words, would you prefer a 100 page site making $10k/day or a 1 page site making the same amount?
