I saw Ellison of Oracle the other night on 60 Minutes II. Quite honestly, if it meant I had to inhabit his fevered, petty, extremely egotistical brain, I'd rather not have the $18.7 billion. There is something not quite human about the guy. To me he comes across as a very unhappy, very conflicted man.
