    Xavier Receives $500k Grant From Charles Koch Foundation

    Was interested to see this nugget show up in my Inbox this morning:

    The Cincinnati (OH) Business Courier (6/11, Subscription Publication) reports the Stephen S. Smith Center within Xavier University’s Williams College of Business “was awarded a $500,000 grant from the Charles Koch Foundation, a private philanthropy established by the chairman of the board and CEO of Koch Industries. The grant will be used to support the Smith Center’s mission to promote learning, scholarship and debate about ideas that impact society with a focus on economics and its relationship to law, political philosophy and history.”

    I was able to get a "tour' of the SSS Center last Nov. while on campus. What an incredibly cool setup. Thanks Chuck.

    Even the Koch brothers have a scintilla of kindness in their bones despite their extreme right-wing-ness! Not everyone can be as angelic and intelligent in every way as people like Warren Buffett, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Tom Steyer.

    I think Xavier should return this conservative and dirty money which was unethically made off the backs of hard working Americans selling products that have destroyed the environment. I am pretty sure the Kochs even supported Kavanaugh for judge and didn't believe Anita Hill.

    I think Bezos belongs in a group with Tom Steyer. I don't think those guys belong in a group with Buffett and Gates.
