To Pinch a Penny

leave a comment »

Sergey Brin has a net worth in excess of 58 billion dollars and personally donated 5,000$ to Barack Obama’s reelection campaign . . . and unless that is just the cover for a much, much larger anonymous donation (which I doubt . . .), I cannot imagine anything more indicative of a penny-pinching cheapskate . . . unless you have other words more appropriate and better fitting.

But then, a big deal was made about Google giving 100 million dollars in donations to a variety of causes, which if we examine that Google is valued at around 137 billion dollars, makes that 100 million less than 1/10th of 1%.  I can give 1/10th of 1 percent of my net value every other day.  And yet we laud Google for its miserly giving.
