Wealthy technology guru Jim Clark has stopped payment on $60 million of a $150-million pledge to Stanford University for biomedical science, citing anger over President Bush's restrictions on stem cell research. The decision by Clark, founder of Silicon Graphics, Netscape, Healtheon and myCFO, is highly unusual in higher education philanthropy. In recent years, donors have pulled gifts out of anger with recipient universities. Some have canceled donations when their investments have gone sour.

I was deeply saddened to hear of the brutal killing of Jim Clark. I didn't know his name, but I recognized him from the photograph as the person who through the years at Surfers Point had occasionally come up to the window of my truck asking for change as I checked the surf. At first I put him off, but later I gave in and gave him a few dollars in quarters I kept in my ashtray for parking money. I was impressed by how well he took care of himself under the circumstances he placed himself in and how much of a gentleman he was when I told him I had no money.

Silicon Valley entrepreneur Jim Clark on Friday said he would pump more money into his "new new thing"--Healtheon/WebMD Corp.--prompting a surge in the share price of the beleaguered Internet-based health services network. Clark, the billionaire who was profiled in Michael Lewis' recent book "The New New Thing," will buy up to $220 million of the company's stock with fellow Healtheon director John Doerr.

Remember the first time you watched a Lionel train set roaring around the Christmas tree and you fell in love with trains? You told your parents you wanted to be an engineer. Now, years later, it seems like a silly idea, doesn't it? Stan Garner and Jim Clark are two grown men who wouldn't agree with you. They own and operate Shortline Enterprises Ltd., a real train operation in Piru. They get to run the locomotive, switch the cars . . . heck, they even get to ring the bell.

Jim Clark, the onetime Stanford professor whose launch of 3-D computer maker Silicon Graphics and Internet phenom Netscape Communications have already made him one of the most successful high-tech entrepreneurs ever, is launching another new venture--an online health-care service called Healthscape. Clark and the elite venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, which also funded Netscape, have invested a total of $5 million in the new venture.

Saying that he felt terribly indebted to Stanford for helping him become fabulously rich in the Silicon Valley, Netscape co-founder Jim Clark said Tuesday that he will donate $150 million to propel the university into the next high-tech revolution: biomedical engineering. The gift, the largest monetary donation in Stanford's history and fifth-largest to any American university, is designed to jump-start the Palo Alto campus in the biomedical race with other major universities.

Monday's front page of the sports section has an article about a men's college baseball game in Maryland. Meanwhile, way back in the section is a very brief story on the NCAA women's water polo championship, won by USC. Your paper will rip USC for not giving women athletes just funding, but you won't give fair coverage of women's sports. Is it because there are too many Notre Dame alums calling the shots in your sports section or is it blatant bias against women's sports? Either way, it isn't right.
