    Nice to know somebody is doing something with their profits beyond snagging another yacht.

    That's awesome... and seems like a nice way to boost the home-building economy down there...

    That's great and all, but why now? Why not 18 months ago?

    It's never too late to use $20 million for a good cause.

    They are going to make it like the Intercoastal in Florida - each house will have dock area and a boat.

    I'm almost more impressed that this guy is doing this now as opposed to 18 mos ago. The need didn't stop when the national media left town and high-profile celebs and donors moved onto the next cause.

    Sounds like the 21st Century version of the railroad/mining town -- with homes for customers, too.
