The IRS has classified the Corporate Angel Network, the nonprofit organization that provides free air transportation for cancer patients using empty seats on corporate aircraft, as a "public charity." The classification, which is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2001, means CAN donors receive the most favorable income-tax treatment for their donations, and that CAN may accept funding from private foundations. For additional information on CAN, call (914) 328-1313, or visit its Web site at

““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
