Pickens, the outspoken founder of Mesa Petroleum, known for his conservative politics and support of alternative energy, has also given millions to hospitals around the nation.

M&T Bank CEO Robert G. Wilmers couldn't believe the memo he got from another executive at the company about implementing just one small piece of last year's financial reform law. The new formula required by the Dodd-Frank Act for calculating deposit-insurance premiums takes 18 M&T employees working on four committees to gather 60 different numbers, the memo said. They plug those figures into 20 separate equations to derive M&T's "performance score. " The performance score "is then divided by 100, cubed, added to .09 and multiplied by 42.735" to come up with what the bank owes the government for deposit coverage, the memo said.
