Post Haste: Facebook's Zuckerberg will give billions away to charity; What's up with the vultures at the Ridges?

He and his wife announced it yesterday.

Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015:

Here’s something depressing: While we’re paying off student loans, Facebook’s barely 30 CEO will be giving billions to charity.

Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced yesterday he and his wife Dr. Priscilla Chan will donate nearly all of their shares of Facebook, Inc. — currently valued at about $45 billion — to a foundation they established following the birth of their son, Max.

The decision might help his public image, which he felt was harmed by Aaron Sorkin’s The Social Network. The movie depicted him as somewhat shady and, at times, ruthless.

Then again, maybe he’s just a genuinely nice person. The foundation he set up is focused on “advancing human potential and promoting equality.”
