This is why we need to read more than the headlines

Via AP:
"Bolivian President Morales to donate half his paycheck to Peru quake victims"

Take a second. Now scroll down and read the lead. The emphasis is mine.


"LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — President Evo Morales said Monday he will donate half his monthly salary, about $950, to help victims of last week's earthquake in Peru."

I know. Anything counts. But ouch!
