Quote o’ the Day (Charles F. Feeney Edition)

“I want the last check I write to bounce.”

So saith Charles F. Feeney, the “Philanthropist [Who] Wants to Be Rid of his Last $1.5 Billion” according to this About New York piece by Jim Dwyer in yesterday’s New York Times.

Feeney seems to be a thoroughly admirable figure, a man who’s already given away $6 billion through “Atlantic Philanthropies, the group of private foundations he created in 1982 and managed to run anonymously for its first 15 years, even though it was one of the largest sources of grants in the United States, Ireland, South Africa and Vietnam.”

Check him out. To all appearances, he’s a world-class mensh.
