We’re betting the price of that wig could feed a family of five for a year in certain countries.

Oh, that’s priceless.

A longtime activist, Redford, 70, said he worked for Standard Oil Co. in El Segundo for three years before his movie career took off, so he knows how damaging oil extraction is to public health.

“The oil companies have been simply getting away for too long with not paying their fair share,” he said.

Entertainment magnates on the other hand apparently aren’t bound by such moral obligations.

With such vast experience and knowledge, you would think that Redford would also recognize that America is better when you “spread the wealth around.” Doesn’t he know that our infrastructure is crumbling like so much pancake makeup?

The state of New York could use that $1.6 million for the children, but Redford apparently needs to swim in it like Scrooge McDuck.


How can you say that?
