"Someone forgot to tell the .01% to be greedier": National Post looks at Chronicle list of top philanthropists of 2013 and sees generosity of wealthy.

"OK, these folks are mega-rich, there are tax breaks in the U.S. that encourage charitable giving, and none of these people will starve even after making their donations. Still the extraordinary amounts regularly handed out by some of the world's richest people conflicts somewhat with the popular wheeze of the 1%--or in this case, the .001%--being greedy plutocrats who siphon off the world's wealth for themselves while turning a blind eye to the less fortunate." -- Kelly McParland, the National Post
