Good for him, though it appears it's timed! Still, money donated to a worthy cause has to be good.

As usual the Media just had to make a negative response to why Mark Zuckerberg was making a huge donation to a place he knew nothing about so what who cares where he spends his money People today especially in the Media has that option to saying what they want but let me tell you if we just had 2 minutes to say what we would all like on any given day, I know the world would be a better place..

That's all fine and good, but Newark will just waste the funds on their notorious corruption.

How much good that money would have done if CORRECTLY applied.

That guy has so many billions in his pockets now that spending $100 million here and there would be like, for me, giving a 0.20 euro coin to a beggar in my street.

I've read this week that he's now above Steve Jobs in the Forbes' list of billionaires.

Meanwhile, on Earth this week.....

How many foreclosures this week in the US of A?
How many children on the African continent died of malnutrition?
How many poor workers in France who can feed their families and children ONLY from charity because once they've paid the rent, electricity etc, there's almost nothing left?
Etc.............................. (insert 100s of lines of .............................. here ..............................)

From Andy Borowitz: "Founder of Friendster Donates $75 to University of Phoenix" Just wanted to add a touch of levity guys.

Plus I'm not that impressed since he stole Facebook from a friend and really isn't the founder.
