Earth to Bill Gates: Thank you
This little editorial that appeared recently is (obviously) dancing on the fringe of cheesiness, but it begs an interesting question about philanthropy and the world's richest man. Gates appeared
on Bill Moyers' NOW
last night, and was reasonably candid (he used the phrase "failure of capitalism"), mentioning more than once that he intended to give away ~95%
of his wealth, mostly to aid public health. Our perceptions
of his politics aside, it would seem as if Gates intends to go out with a humanist bang.

Nader to Gates:
"It is significant that a small number of persons who run the company hold a substantial share of the stock in the company, a fact that is very unusual for such a large publicly traded corporation."
"This also raises questions about whether or not these persons, including yourself, are accumulating these staggering sums of cash to advance other agendas, rather than to advance the interest of shareholders."

the bill gates makeover
"He is the father of the future, the symbol of a new generation, and he really needs a makeover. Bill Gates as you've never seen him before; it's almost as if he were an entirely different person."
