That's a Big Teaspoon

Gates donates $750 million to fight AIDS, TB, and malaria.

Yeah, I know all the "drop in the bucket of his fortune" and "tax deductible" and "Windows stinks" stuff that inevitably goes along with anything good Gates does, but I don't give a shit. Anyone who doesn't think giving more than a billion dollars to fight global disease is fucking cool, irrespective of whatever legit and totally stupid caveats one might make, is too cynical for my comprehension.

Bill and Melinda Gates have a mighty big teaspoon, and they know how to use it.
