Blood Money

Cute that this is up next to the David Byrne vs Tom Waits post.

http://journal.davidbyrne.com/2010/05/052510-yours-truly-vs-the-governor-of-florida.html

I was talking with someone about the above-linked court case (short form? Gov. Crist used a Talking Heads song in a campaign ad, David Byrne never ever sells their songs to be used in ads, David Byrne is suing Crist for about as much as folks normally offer to use their songs in ads), and the matter came up of what Byrne'll do with the money, since it's not like he really needs a spare million.

My leading guess/hope was that he'd end up donating the money to some charity or art fund, and that got me to wondering if it's ever been announced what Tom Waits has done with his winnings, when he's won similar cases.

I could very much see Tom doing what I'd guess/hope David would do. Anyone out there know for sure?
