The headline says it all:
"The NRA Pissed Off the Wrong Nerd Genius".
The world's richest person and most generous philanthropist is getting political. Until now, Bill Gates has been content to eradicating polio and malaria, strengthening education, attacking contaminated waters supplies and the like. But now, he has taken aim at the gun lobby (joining with small-time billionaire Michael Bloomberg) with a $1-million donation in support of a Washington background-check initiative. Just to keep things in the family, his Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has kicked in $500,000.
