"Scruffy man donates millions"
« on: February 05, 2015, 04:50:15 PM »
So this guy was pretty mustachian: http://www.cnn.com/2015/02/05/us/vermont-frugal-man-donates-millions/index.html

I can't believe CNN describes him as scruffy in the front page headline :/  Kinda rude!  They should have used 'frugal' instead :)

Though his jobs never yielded large salaries, Read enjoyed investing in the stock market, always putting his money into "dividend producing stocks," Rowell said.

He lived modestly, hating to spend money or see anything go to waste, a release from Rowell's law firm said.

Haha, I was debating which forum to put it in!  Your choice was probably more accurate now that I think about it, because although this guy was surely a badass, it's not "my badassity" xD
