4. I like Jane Mayer, but that link locks my computer!
I had to reboot twice. A popup ad of some kind is too much for my old pc. I'll try to find it a different way.

13. The Koch brothers take greed to a whole new level.
Money is more important than family to theses guys, so you know they don't care how many ordinary people they destroy in their pursuit of more money.


Here is a quote really worth noting from the article:

"It's no accident that you may have barely heard of the Kochs. Except for Bill, they loathe public attention."

I say we give them a big dose of what they hate the most. A LOT of public attention, and NEGATIVE public attention at that.
