    Writer Jim Hill was upset

    Have I made any mistakes?

    Writer Jim Hill was upset when he read in the newspapers that he had become rich through his charity foundation. In fact, he lived in a one-room flat, drove a twenty years old Ford, and seldom went on holiday. The foundation was his lifetime achievement, which, as he grew old, meant more to him than his writing.

    Two things. One, I think it should be charitable foundation. Two, he should get a newer car.
