I sincerely hope that Google just pays their taxes so to speak, in just letting the money go to public works with no strings attached, and go without owning a piece of (what is rightly) public property.
This proposed privatization of a public space is bad for everyone but the 1%, and I know that people will think less of Google as a company if they lease that space in return for their so-called "philanthropy."

You'd think the bean-counters at NASA, the agency that once sent humans to the moon, and returned them safely to the Earth, could have figured that out by now.
Then those same bean-counters should have have figured out that a recent offer of private funding would solve the "who's going to pay for this?" problem that the Navy and NASA have been ducking for the better part of a decade.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
