The death of the Wal-Mart founder's widow, Helen Walton, is slated to become a $16.4 billion windfall for The Walton Family Foundation, a charitable organization that backs public education reform. What do you think?

"Helen Walton leaving her fortune to the Walton Family Foundation? This stinks of nepotism."

"This mom-and-pop public education operation has been around long enough."

"On the one hand, I don't care for Wal-Mart. On the other hand, I don't care for public education. So this rich dead lady is really starting to piss me off."
