Eccentric or Incompetent
What's the difference between being eccentric and incompetent? Money. If you're wealthy enough, you're eccentric, as opposed to the poor people, that we call freaking nuts. Last week the valley learned that Linny Fowler, long time patron of many respectable valley organizations, gave some couple over a $million dollars, hundreds of thousands for dental care alone. That couple now faces criminal charges. I suspect that the same lack of discretion was in place for years, and that many worthwhile groups benefited from her deteriorating health and decision making. Don't expect them to be indicted.
