    Speaking of billionaires ...

    Public Storage's Wayne Hughes made the Forbes list.

    Bill Gates would still hold that position if he weren't such a philanthropist.

    This is true. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation gives more to charity than most countries do.

    Then again, I don't know if those contributions are deducted or still included in the way they calculate the list.

    It is interesting that Public Storage's president made the list, though.
