Weekend Links We Like to Link to – Happy News (?)

Sorry it took so long to post. Been trying to get some jobs out there and trying not to post on political stuff.

Good to know that not all rich people are stingy. Warren Buffet (whom I heard really recently overtook Bill Gates as the richest person in the world) is not only the first or second richest person, but also the biggest donor among billionaires (in terms of amount donated vs actual wealth) . Gates is second on this list. How much is Buffet worth? Fifty-two billion dollars. How much has he given recently? Between 2001-2006 he donated over $46 billion. Of course, once you hit over 20 billion smackaroonies, you really gotta ask, “Besides become my own superhero – or trying to take one down – what else could I do with this excess moola?”

I had some thoughts about this topic – Christian teenagers going off to college and (at least temporarily) storing their religion away (and not losing it as popularly believed) – and I recognized that my thoughts on it wouldn’t fit into this format. So, I’ll continue reading this article (and see what else I can find on it) and post my thoughts up on ChicagoDads.

Okay, here’s the happy news:

Can it get any more giddy than that?
