I'd love to be proved wrong on this, but Billy Graham seems
to be an exception proving the rule.  If one uses the analogy of
Chicago politics, he was Richard Daley, Sr.--the one of the bunch
that chose power over dollars.  Not that he can be accused of
ascetism--the quoted salary from his org doesn't include his perks,
and even if he donated half the profits from his books which
usually make the best-seller list (e.g., "Angels--God's Secret
Agents") he's still comfortably within the top 1/2% of Americans
in income and property.
