It's heartwarming that Warren Buffett is giving away $37 billion to the Bill Gates foundation. I heard that particular charity was having some cashflow issues. Plus, there really aren't a lot of charities or causes out there anymore. So this made perfect sense to me all the way around. Lend a hand to the underdog. You don't want any one foundation, you know, completely monopolizing the business of charitable giving. That just isn't the way Bill Gates does business.
In other news, the Oakland Athletics have decided to disband and send all their players to the New York Yankees, and Burger King is giving half of its stores to McDonald's.
