    Carnegie was a vicious horrible capitalist who sought salvation at the end by doing something for all the people he spent a lifetime screwing over. Like Nobel. Like Bill Gates. Maybe someday the Koch bros will seek to buy their salvation too.

    Frankly, I blame everything on Nixon.

      I didn't know that about him. It would be nice if we could devise an improved community library system w/out the donating philanthropist having to undo the 1st several evil decades of his/her life so it doesn't need to be guilt driven.

      We are here to awaken from the illusion of our separateness.
