What's the point? Is anyone going to give donate money to Christie knowing that a billionaire likes him? Why doesn't Mark just gift Christie some money?

Boy, it is interesting to see the difference in the response from local folks between the disaster in New Orleans and the disasters in New York and New Jersey. Why do we hear nothing about fundraising for Sandy while things were really hopping for the other hurricane?

@curious

1. This post is about a campaign fundraiser, not Sandy relief.

2. with what data do you make the absurd claim "the difference in the response from local folks between the disaster in New Orleans and the disasters in New York and New Jersey." ?

Mark Zuck started getting weird when he decided he couldn't eat anything with a face unless he killed it himself.

Dear Sue Dremman,

Thanks for the article.
I have a suggestion for another time.
You wrote:

"Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla. . . "

To me, this sounds as though Priscilla is simply incidental. I don't think that's the case.

I might have written the following:

"Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and physician Priscilla Chan, who have been married since last year. . ."

Just an idea.

Or, you could put Dr. Chan's name first, and make her husband, Mark, the incidental one!

The Republican party needs people like Christie, so it's not as alarming as if it was just another republican pol in the pockets of the extremists.

Zuckerberg is just being normal with his sudden change in political parties of choice
Young and full of hope and wonderment = Democratic
More mature now and lots of money = republican.

At this fundraiser, I wonder if he will share some of his hand killed meats?
Kinda strange if he does ''Why yes governor I just killed that my self this morning''

Dont get me wrong I love meats I just prefer not to be able to put a face on what I eat.

Just another way to change to world (or buy political influence).

Mark Zuckerberg may be Internet smart, but he can be really dumb about a lot of other things. Hence his current nickname locally.

Moo

Dr. Chan, unfortunately, is a nobody. This is only news because of who her husband is. Therefore the headline is correct. If her husband was also a nobody, this would have been no news.

It is not interesting to know about a doctor and her husband that nobody has heard of doing anything to help a republican.

"Palo Alto is shifting fast from being liberal to being big business, ... right wing."

Basing that on what? All the republicans elected recently?
