    It’s amazing that people try to make it seem like Gates’ money is poison for trying to improve standards of education while we see large number of college students requiring remedial classes and more. Yet I question whether those crtitics criticize money used by the Koch Brothers to try to weaken EPA regulations while they more likely add to polution or poison to our air which hurts us and our children!
