A Billionaire Being Generous?!?!?!?!?!
Avery Damon Penny obeys this union member's sign and hands him a billion dollar bill! The museum security guards are angry because they have not received a raise in some time and do not have benefits. All this despite the museum raising scads of cash for its expansion plans. But the billion dollar bill should help this chap! (Well, not really...)
In the background is one of the two champion racing yachts owned by billionaire Bill Koch. It was gratifying for us to see this illustration of the income gap - security guards having trouble making ends meet next to multi-million dollar racing yachts which have no other purpose than to provide entertainment for the wealthy!
