The estate tax is simply an existence tax. You’ve done nothing to trigger government involvement in your personal affairs other than die. It seems incumbent on the government to establish persuasive right and need for the tax, especially considering it is levied on those who have no more voice.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced $287 million in grants on Wednesday to create an international network of 16 labs to try new approaches to making a vaccine against AIDS.

The foundation says it wants the program to transform the so-far unsuccessful AIDS vaccine effort by rewarding individual labs that come up with innovative ideas and helping them develop those ideas, but also ensuring that they collaborate with other researchers, who under ordinary circumstances would often be considered rivals.

"This is the foundation's largest-ever investment in HIV vaccine development. In fact, it's our largest-ever package of grants for HIV and AIDS," Dr. Nicholas Hellmann, acting director of the Gates Foundation's HIV, TB, and Reproductive Health program, told reporters in a telephone briefing.

I think this puts Bono in Warren Buffet's debt. In return I think U2 should have to play Omaha on every tour. I say this half-jokingly... Maybe.
