George Lucas Makes It All Worthwhile

Following the news of the sale of George Lucas' media empire to Disney, there was quite a bit of high-fiving and comments about him ruining Star Wars anyway with the prequels and so on. Whether you feel that way or not, Mr. Lucas is donating the bulk of the proceeds of the $4 billion transaction to his educational fund (where a lot of his money has gone, by the way). So major props, good karma, etc. must go to GL. I trust the Force is strong with him:

“I am dedicating the majority of my wealth to improving education. It is the key to the survival of the human race. We have to plan for our collective future—and the first step begins with social, emotional, and intellectual tools we provide to our children. As humans, our greatest tool for survival is our ability to think and to adapt—as educators, storytellers, and communicators our responsibility is to continue to do so.”
