Good on ya, Kristof

A while back I castigated New York Times columnist Nick Kristof for preposterously holding up Costa Rica as some sort of relevant model for U.S. foreign and economic policy.

But, I must say that I really loved his column on "The Power of Half," the story of an Atlanta family that sold their enormous house, bought a smaller one, and donated the difference to assiduously-researched charities.

It's the sort of "small step toward a much better world" that I can get behind.
