Global Alliance for Vaccines - Upmanship

Check out this story from The London Times.

Chancellor trumps Gates pledge with £1bn for vaccines

GORDON BROWN will today pledge almost £1 billion to funding vaccines for children in the poorest countries.

The Chancellor’s extraordinary commitment is more than double the money donated to the same fund yesterday by Bill Gates, the world’s richest man.

A country giving double what one man gives; is this something to brag about? Even if he is the world's richest man he is still only one man.

Shouldn't the article be about how generous the rich can be; how generous a rich capitalist can be; how generous a rich capitalist American can be.

Naw, it wouldn't fit the agenda.

Still, I'm glad their getting the aid they need.
