A Tale of Two Weather Tycoons

From today's headlines, comes the tale of two weather tycoons.

Joel N. Myers, the founder, president and chairman of AccuWeather Inc. and current Penn State trustee and alumnus, has committed $2 million to help ensure Penn State’s continued international leadership in meteorology, University President Graham B. Spanier announced at the Board of Trustees meeting today

Over the years,... [Frank Batten,Sr., founder of the Weather Channel,]  donated more than $223 million to schools and other educational organizations. His donations included a 2007 gift of $100 million to his alma mater, the University of Virginia, to establish the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, and a $60 million gift in 1999 to the university’s Darden Graduate School of Business Administration.

Just sayin'....
