    Disney is one of the wealthiest corporations in the world. They need the money.

    Ummm, Disney is paying Lucas the sum of money...not the other way around. This post is about Lucas making a sizable donation, not Disney.

    So, would you like to see him NOT make the donation? Do you have a problem with the charity or just the structure of the IRS in regards to charity?

    I can't leave you twisting in the wind like that, Midwest Lib. Maybe you haven't seen the left take Mitt Romney apart for his charitable contributions. It was sarcasm.

    Maggie, don't be a hack, only rich conservatives donate to evade taxes, Lucas is doing it because he's a kind hearted liberal.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Kinda thought that might be the case, but it's so damn hard to translate sarcasm through written word. Next time put a smiley in there to get through my density!
    For what it's worth, charitable donation is one of the too many tax loopholes out there that I support. It can however, like anything else out there, be exploited.

    He's going to be the main character. The next movie is Episode VII: The Life and Times of Jar Jar Binks.
