The extraordinary generosity of ordinary Americans :: Jeff Jacoby

From the article: 
There are those whose first instinct is to turn to government when a social ill appears. Of course there are some functions for which government is well-suited. But on the whole, private philanthropic problem-solving will always be more nimble, more innovative, more individualized, and more efficient than anything the government can do.

Another reminder of the efficiency of the free market over government intervention.  Also, the general goodness of the American people in contrast to some who want to paint us as evil to the rest of the world.
