Joan Kroc–the widow of the founder of McDonald’s–has bequeathed $200 million to National Public Radio. It’s being called “the largest monetary gift ever received by an American cultural institution.”
Attention conservative elderly billionaires. Do NOT leave all your money to a) a foundation; or b) your liberal wife. This is why they invented trust funds. I hope, for the sake of the peace of the late Mr. Kroc’s neighbors in the cemetery, that he was a left-liberal himself. Oherwise, you know the poor guy is spinning in his grave.
An American cultural institution. When did government-funded propaganda become cultural?
