Who does Gillette think it is fooling in todays advertisement in the business section?

They boast about giving just under $2 million to Boston charities. That amount pales in comparison with the amount James Kilts will walk away with: $165 million. Kilts' bonanza is the equivalent to the salaries of 3,421 average persons in Boston (where the average pay packet is $48,000). That is the kind of purchasing power that is being taken out of the local economy by the largess thrown to Mr Kilts.

If the $2 million figure for charity and the $165 million figure for Kilts were reversed then Gillette might have something to boast about.
