On "Weekend Edition/Saturday" and "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me"
this morning, it was made clear that this bequest will go into 
an endowment rather than be spent all at once.  It's hoped
that proceeds from the endowment will dampen revenue swings
NPR and other, um "Cultural" organizations have recently
(It's like every time I went white water rafting in Maine,
the guide always considered me ballast to keep the raft from 
becoming unstable)
