This final note today, which comes with the caveat that I don’t invent the news — I just tell you what it is.

The fourth richest woman in the country is in the news today. Elaine Tettemer Marshall is her name. She’s 70 years old, and Bloomberg reports she owns 15 percent of Koch Industries — a stake worth almost $13 billion.

The funny part is that despite her wealth — which she got following the death of her husband E. Pierce Marshall — we’ve never heard much about her, even though her money’s been at the center of two Supreme Court cases involving her mother-in-law: Anna Nicole Smith.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
