Now That's Charity

Seven time Formula One champion, and unquestionably (and unfortunately, for a McLaren fan like myself), the greatest racing driver alive in the world today, Michael Schumacher, donated $10,000,000 to the victims of the tsunami disaster. Wow.

Contrast that with the paltry $15,000,000 the United States originally pledged, until the world community came down on us like a load of bricks. Kudos to you, Michael, for being almost as generous as the entire United States of America; now, I dislike you a tiny bit less. And kudos to the world community for coming down on us like a load of bricks.
