I could not disagree more Tom. I usually really enjoy your perspective, but I have to firmly disagree with you here. In a world where millions of children die for lack of food and basic healthcare how can we say "It's your money, spend it as you will"? This is capitalism run amok in my opinion. Why do we defend selfishness and greed? Why are we eager to protect our "right" to live exorbitantly?

I am your father

Ray J,

What are you doing to help those hungry children, lets start there. Maybe you should spend more time spreading the word since it is so important to you. To each their own. If I were rich I would probably help the less fortunate in Charlotte NC because that is the community I grew up and care about. I guess we are all selfish for not thinking of what cause Ray J thinks is most important

Ray J,

Part of the 2 Billion that was paid will be spread to the "needy"

You see the IRS will collect what is known as tax.

I have full faith in our government to apply the estimated $662 Million dollars in State, Federal and Capital Gains taxes to good use to help all the great causes we support like unemployment, food stamps, welfare, section 8 housing, etc, etc.

Ray J,

I'll remember to check in with you to be sure I'm spending my money in a way that meets your approval.

Hopefully some of that will trickle down to the washed-up General Manager fund.

STEVE BALLMER DID NOT GIVE TWO BILLION DOLLARS AWAY. HE MADE A BUSINESS INVESTMENT. HIS PARTNER AT MICROSOFT "PAUL ALLEN' HAS BEEN DOING THIS FOR YEARS AND HAS BEEN PRAISED FOR IT.

Paul Allen’s Seahawks Beat Microsoft as an Investment

Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen holds up the George Halas Trophy after the Seahawks... Read More
Even if the Seattle Seahawks lose to the Denver Broncos in Sunday’s Super Bowl, the team has rewarded owner Paul Allen -- by beating his old company, Microsoft Corp. (MSFT), as an investment.

Allen bought the pro football team as a favor to his native city in 1997, when his heart was in basketball and his investing firepower was focused on a heady concept he called the “wired world.” The too-early bet on the convergence of television and the Internet flopped, losing him more than $8 billion.

Now, with Microsoft searching for direction, Allen’s investments have recovered from that rocky stretch thanks in part to the football team he once said he purchased out of “civic duty.” The Seahawks, buoyed by TV broadcast fees, are worth about six times what Allen paid. In the same period, Microsoft shares have a little more than doubled as the Redmond, Washington-based company struggled to make its software relevant to mobile phones and tablets.
