    Fuckin' A. How much did it cost to name a building after him? Zilch. How much did he make them that year? $247 million. I mean, sure. Be outraged. That's your right. But I have no problem with this.

This exactly. What is the difference if he donated $247,000,000 or he made $247,000,000 for the school? The school is better off by $247,000,000 either way. Total non-issue.
