By any measure, The Johns Hopkins University is an extraordinarily important institution in our city and our state. It is at once a world class educational institution, a major employer and a financial driver. I find it astonishing that Michael Bloomberg's donation to Hopkins ("Bloomberg gives Hopkins $350 million," Jan. 27), the fifth largest donation by an individual ever made to a university worldwide, and but the latest installment in a remarkable series of gifts, merits in-depth front page coverage in The New York Times, but not The Sun.
