Entropy update: Life in the 1%

Brad Hamilton, NY Post - Not long after he bought the most expensive single-family home in the state, a $45 million mansion off Georgica Pond in Wainscott, celeb-loving billionaire Stewart Rahr set his sights on joining the ultra-exclusive Sebonack Golf Club in Southampton.

A links aficionado who plays with Bill Clinton and Arnold Palmer, Rahr figured he’d donate big bucks to the owner’s favorite charity.

“The guy was dying to get in there,” said security honcho Bo Dietl, a pal of club founder Michael Pascucci, whose course will host the 2013 US Women’s Open. “So he actually handed me a blank check for a million dollars for the owner to give to a charity of his choice. I told [Pascucci], ‘Don’t let this douchebag in.’

“I’ve known him for 20 years. He buys everybody.”

... In the last month he got banned from his favorite restaurant, Nobu, after cursing out a manager and lost his gun permit after allegedly threatening an elevator operator at Trump Tower, an allegation he denies and that ended without him being charged.
