Check this article out.  Great point.  What more does a billionaire need?  A legacy as large as King Tut’s.  I’m slightly hesitant to argue fervently for private financing of other massive endeavors.  Like education, for example.  However, Bill Gates has given a plethora of grants to public school systems across the nation and in other countries to improve.  I applaud his efforts in public education, and I hope his money brings success.  I don’t think we can rely on billionaires to bankroll major overhauls of previously public projects.  Right?  Or is this the way of the future?  Is this the way for America to “stay on top”?  (Air quotes, please)
