A Billionaire Brawl


So, basketball didn't work out this year, but Penn beat Princeton where it hurts: the money game. According to Philly.com, Penn has more billionaires on Forbes list of the world's 1,000+ billionaires. With at least 25 billion-izz-aires with ties to Penn, the Quakers handily top the Tiger's nine. The list includes some notables: the world's 3rd richest man (Warren Buffett), a Quadrangle namesake (Ronald Perelman), and a casino mogul (Steve Wynn). The list also includes some not-so-notables, including supermarket heir Charles Butt. Mr. Butt, we're glad you fell into foodstuff fortune, because we're not sure if success was otherwise playing in your favor.
