Sure he's got tons of money, but Ellison has given away millions to charity. For instance, Ellison recently donated $1 million to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund. But his philanthropic ways don't always end with smiling photo-ops: Ellison pledged $115 million to Harvard University and then in 2006 rescinded the offer once president Lawrence Summers (Ellison's pal) was booted from his Harvard job. (Like Harvard really needed it, anyway.) Any of Larry's subjects, er, pals, will tell you there's one thing he likes as much as money: Control.
