Wish I could donate $70 million to my alma mater.

    I might not on the heels of a financial scandal, though.

    I wish you could donate $70 million to me.
     
  6. I'd send a million to alma mater and donate $69 million to me.
    My average charitable donation would thereby be $35 million a year.
    What a guy I am.

    Christianity is a pretty expensive religion.

    I don't wish I gave my alma mater that type of money.

    70 million though reminds me of Oceans 13 and Terry Benedict...

    OK, I wouldn't give the money to Ol' State U.

    Maybe the student rag, which probably could use some. Remember a former editor-in-chief telling us, "this is the only place at this university that's getting a dime of my money."

    Insist on maintaining ridiculously high profit margins at your newspapers to the point you lay off lots of good journalists and then, maybe, you can give $100 million to your alma mater:
