Good news is good news, baby.
Tesla mogul and irreverent pothead Elon Musk has donated a total of $480,350 to schools in the famous city still suffering from bad water systems.

The new water filtration systems will be instrumental in helping our students return to the normalcy in what should be a fundamental right: having access to safe, clean water from water fountains in their school.”
This. Can. Not. Stand.
How am I supposed to spend 24 hours a day yelling about how Elon Musk is helping people?

Bad news is bad news.
