"Leave your kids enough to do anything, but not enough to do nothing"

On Monday, in yet another Onion headline come to life, Warren Buffett gave his fortune to Bill Gates. What Warren Buffett (and the Gates) are doing is admirable. Their commitment should set a standard to which other very wealthy families are compared. When the second richest man on earth comes out strenuously against repealing the estate tax (because it creates a cycle of dependency, and is the opposite of the meritocratic society) and gets behind those words with action, I hope the country listens.
