Yeah, he's a biz man first and foremost. But my sources tell me that he does a fair amount of dental work for cheap or no charge for those without insurance. If that's true, he can pretty much make an ass out of himself however he wants for all I care. When professional folks step up to fill the healthcare gap in this country ... well, that's called altruism. Now add to that the fact he supports public education ...
People whose main priority is actually about doing good things don't insist to have attention lavished upon them for their financial contribution.
Name a rich prick who doesn't expect his dick stroked now and again for his charitable actions. Jerry Frautschi? Oops ... guess not ...
Even Bill Gates gets in front of the camera now and again to talk about his foundation. It's called PR.
That said, I think Kammer's shtick is ultra-corny. Then again, I like it when people make utter asses of themselves in public. It means the rest of us aren't out there all alone. Idiocy loves company.
Alright Chuck clearly you know more about what Chris Krammer is about more than I. I have only had two experiences with him, but they were bad enough for him to assume nemesis status in my life. Yes most philanthropists do get some kind of public credit for their donation, but they don't get on stage and dance around. Everyone knows Jerry Frautschi donated for the Overture, but he doesn't insist in coming out to tell a couple jokes or do the hustle before every event at the Overture. Maybe they could just mention the Madison Center for Cosmetic Dentistry a couple times from the podium and have it prominently printed on the MAMA's program. Sparing us from toothbrush glitter weapons and hard to stomach cornball humor.
And Blues, accusing me of being mean?! How odd from such a soft spoken, mild mannered fellow. The dunk tank is a good idea though and I would accept your punishment to go in it myself. I am looking for excuses to take my shirt off in public. I am totally buff and that doesn't come across enough on my radio show.
