It is always wonderful to see small business give back to the community

Nice to see crooks on Wall Street screwing over Middle class America and doing something nice with the money.

That's great but you know this is usually more about ego. My father's old boss Hank Rowan donated 100 Million to Glassboro University in NJ (now called Rowan University). That same year, he decided that there would be no bonuses for his employees, they just about had a riot they were so pissed off.

We need two shrubberies, with one slightly higher than the other so you get a little path going down the middle.

It sounds gracious..until you realize everyone living around Central Park is in the 1%. So basically he's donated money to maintain and pretty up the backyard of people like himself.

That may be true in an absolute sense, but it's still bullshiat, since people from all over the world, let alone the country and all neighborhoods and boroughs of NYC, go to the park to chill, play, walk, run, etc.

Things can be selfish and still benefit mankind (and vice versa).

Rats! I was hoping they were going in the dumpers and I could buy an acre of Central Park and build a house there. Maybe next year.
