Bloomberg philanthropy is big news

The great news of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's wonderful gift to Johns Hopkins University, which will also benefit our city and state, was relegated to page two of The Sun ("Bloomberg donates $350 million to Johns Hopkins for research, scholarships," June 26).
