Simpsons co-creator Sam Simon won't be around much longer to enjoy his fortune -- so he's giving it away to people and organizations who need it more than he does. Five months ago, the 58-year-old writer/producer was diagnosed with terminal colon cancer and told he had three to six months to live. Rather than wallow in what he couldn't do with his life, however, he started thinking about what he could do -- namely, donate the tens of millions of dollars he earns annually in Simpsons royalties to charity.
