Richest NY’er Ignores Poor… Gives $100 mil To New York State Theater at Lincoln Center.

Things like this show you that there are a group of wealthy people that could give 2 sh*ts about the well being of normal Americans. With all the economic woes going on, this dip sh*t decides to give a $100 million to some crappy theater is shocking and appauling. David Koch you are full of yourself and no matter how much money you amass you lack one thing and that my friend is a soul. Die slow.

NEW YORK (AP) – Billionaire oil baron David Koch has pledged $100 million to renovate the New York State Theater at Lincoln Center.

The theater, home to City Opera and the New York City Ballet, will be renamed the David H. Koch Theater.

Koch (COKE) has an estimated net worth of $17 billion and ranks 10th on Forbes’ list of richest Americans.

He will donate the money over 10 years.

Koch is a board member of Koch Industries, based in Wichita, Kan. The company was founded in 1927 by his father, Fred, with a fleet of oil-delivery trucks.

The New York Times says the gift represents the largest private capital donation in Lincoln Center’s history.

  1. Hi.
    I just wanted to comment on a couple of things.

    First, this is my image that you have used without permission.
    While I appreciate that you have left my watermark and copyright information intact, I do not appreciate that you have stolen it from my website and hosted it elsewhere to use without permission.

    Second, you have the wrong David Koch.
    The man in this photo is an Australian TV presenter and financial advisor. If you had read the corresponding links on the webpage with his photo, instead of Googling for an image on a mere name and then taking the image with researching it further, you would have know that.

    I would appreciate it greatly if you could please remove my image from your webpage. It’s theft and furthermore it’s the wrong David Koch to be placed alongside your article.

    Thank you.

  2. I think the arts are important and as someone who works in a cultural institution I can say that we are the first to feel the blows of a slowing economy. People let their memberships lapse or stop paying for admission and eventually a lot of hardworking people are out of jobs. Mr. Koch’s gift will ensure that at least one arts organization will still be able to operate and provide much needed jobs in this field for years to come (I’m not even going to mention how it will help maintain NYC’s reputation as a premier cultural venue!). Your statement exemplifies exactly why I will probably be out of a job in about 9 months. Thanks!
