Who's Evil Now?

The Prince of Darkness is trading in his horns to become the King of Compassion. Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who is the world's richest man, is stepping down from the computer Goliath to concentrate on charity work.

In 2000, Gates and his wife started the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which focuses on providing vaccinations to people in the developing world, AIDS research and supplying computer technology to libraries and schools. The foundation, which has $26 billion in assets, has "given away more money than Andrew Carnegie and John Rockefeller put together, even when adjusted for inflation." Not bad for the devil.

Perhaps Gates will extend his commitment in Africa by financing a state-of-the-art OBGYN center in Namibia, complete with paparazzi sensors and an ample supply of Cheetos.
