'Money makes the world go 'round'

From the Good Professor, a bit of encouraging news about the progressive ability to battle Richard Mellon Scaife and his ilk:
"A group of billionaire philanthropists are to donate tens of millions more dollars to develop progressive political ideas in the US in an effort to counter the conservative ascendancy. George Soros, who made his fortune in the hedge fund industry; Herb and Marion Sandler, the California couple who own a multi-billion-dollar savings and loan business; and Peter Lewis, the chairman of an Ohio insurance company, donated more than $63 million in the 2004 election cycle to organizations seeking to defeat Bush. At a meeting in San Francisco last month, the left-leaning billionaires agreed to commit an even larger sum over a longer period to building institutions to foster progressive ideas and people. "

Money, as they say in Cabaret, makes the world go round. Every little bit helps! My dream is to buy out the Wall Street Journal and make it sing the praises of Marxian economics. KIDDING! :) I WOULD like to buy the WSJ someday though. When I rule the world, I suppose.
