As I’m recalling, early in his career the Woodster couldn’t wait to get off of the Main Line to the *train* line (the Dink), so you would think that a little conscience money would kick in here. There’s a whole trope in philanthropy wherein a hypothetical outside doner says why should I give you XYZ, you should be placing more emphasis on ——, which is the asker- cue to say, “if you gave us some money that’s what we’d use it for.” Which is o.k., I guess, but really, why not just s(p)end it more directly then?

Very much like the Soviet Union, we support only the rich. I would send a do-re-mi and may be a fa if it goes directly to that fellowship.
