As many as 15,000 people are feared dead in Bangladesh after this weekend's killer cyclone. A humanitarian crisis looms, with food shortages and outbreaks of disease likely.
Seems to me the U.S. can pony up more than $2.1 million in aid, as is being reported.
Italy's Roman Catholic bishops are donating more (then again, they probably have more cash on hand). The British are pledging twice as much.
Not only is the right thing to do, but the smart thing, as Bangladesh is predominantly Muslim. No doubt radical Islamists will exploit our feeble response.
Frankly, we should be embarrassed.
