John Moores to give $2.1 million to Scripps Research Institute

Very generous gift to Scripps from Mr. Moores.

The gift, from John Moores, will be used to help fund a $50 million initiative to recruit new researchers and to sustain and expand the work of scientists at The Scripps Research Institute.

Sandy Alderson, commenting on the donation said that the $2.1 million is better spent on researchers and scientists and smart dudes, not unlike himself, as opposed to the Padres and their deadbeat fans who keep asking stupid questions over and over again. F'ing dumbasses.
