      They devised “The Pledge” in which members of Congress pledged their loyalty to a US Corporation, and gave at least $125 million to climate-denial groups to ensure no movement on the most pressing challenge of our time.  I’m speculating this makes him eligible to lie in state at the Capitol with a little nudge from McConnell and Gardner. Let’s hope his afterworld is as increasingly warm as the one he left behind.

      My favorite part of the Washington Post article about David Koch's passing is the last bit: 

      "At the 2011 dedication of a new cancer research facility at MIT, to which he had contributed $100 million, he joked, “I read stuff about me and I say, ‘God, I’m a terrible guy.’ And then I come here and everybody treats me like I’m a wonderful fellow, and I say, ‘Well, maybe I’m not so bad after all.’ ”

      If the only people that treat you well are the people that you pay to be around you, maybe you should re-examine your life. Unfortunately, I don't think that he did.
