America the beautiful

Private donations by Americans for tsunami relief have passed the one billion dollar mark! (via Instapundit). Congratulations, and thanks for being an inspiration to us all.
The current quoted amount is 1,030,714,108.34 dollars. Given that the US population is estimated at 295,971,560 people, this means 3.48 dollars for every woman, man and child in the US. Just for the tsunami! I am very impressed. If any European (or any other) country's contribution was even comparable I would be very surprised.
In your face, Jimmy!
