That Jimmy Buffett Sure Is A Good Guy
Such were my thoughts a couple of days ago when I read the Drudge Report and saw the headline:
"Buffett To Give Away His Fortune."
Then I realized it wasn't Jimmy, but tycoon Warren.
Still, a nice thing to do.
Then I find out that he is giving his billions to...Bill Gates.
Now, I know I'll never be in a position to give away billions of dollars, but...
Don't you think it's a little ironic that the 2nd richest guy in the world is giving his fortune to the richest guy in the world?
Does anyone else see the comedy here? I mean, he has $37,000,000,000 to give away. He can give it to anyone, anywhere, that he desires.
That's 37 with 9 zeroes. And all he can think of to do with it is give it to one guy? A guy who has an even bigger numeral in front of his 9 zeroes?
What's up with this? There are thousands of charities out there. And he's going to give it all to Bill Gates Foundation?
I'll never understand this world.
