UK columnist admits, "I know this is churlish, but..." in wake of Boston bombing, private donations don't make up for the U.S.'s healthcare policy shortfalls.
"This generosity is a sign that something is right with us, when we hear about so much that is wrong. But our willingness to donate also raises questions about the long-term: is our kindness, and our willingness to help, substituting for greater policy changes? Charity is lovely, but perhaps universal health coverage would help too?" -- Helaine Olen, the Guardian
