      So let's say a major humanitarian like David Koch kicks in mega$$s for a building at a prestigious university to fund medical research - it's all good, right?

      Sure, unless you consider that with the other hand he was funding the TeaParty types, which led to the following type of hilarity:

      On Friday, conservative billionaire David Koch lamented the deep federal cuts that are expected to impact both the National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute—and, by extension, MIT's new David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research. "If the cutbacks happen, it will significantly diminish the level of research that can be carried on at the Koch Institute," he said, speaking at the opening of the research center.

      Hey David - or should I just call you FuckWad - guess how those deep NIH cuts came to be . .. .
