Re: Brave New World

  concerning :
  Once again, are these tax-deductible contributions? Nothing is philanthropic
  (sp?) if you recover the amount of your donation. I really don't know. I guess
  it really shouldn't matter whether Bill Gates donates small percentages of his
  money or not. He earned that money by plundering companies and other persons'
  work! Not saying that he isn't allowed to donate the money, I just refuse to
  honor the "philanthropic" accomplishments of a person who plunders others and
  lives in excess and greed like too many of his other CEO counterparts. I wish
  the media world would refuse to honor these ideals as well.
