Financial Times: Soros & friends to fund lefty think tanks / World / US - Soros group raises stakes in battle with US neo-cons: The Financial Times reports that a group of billionaires including George Soros, Herb and Marion Sandler, and Peter Lewis has agreed to commit unspecified-but-very-large sums of money to "building institutions to foster progressive ideas and people. [...] The intention is to provide the left with organisations in Washington that can match the heft of the rightwing think-tanks such as Heritage Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute. At a state level, the aim is to build what one person called a “deeper progressive bench”."

I'm not sure whether to welcome this or worry....
