    Tom White, one of the co-founders of Partners in Health has passed away. Wonderful obit here. This line had me tearing up "He lived his life with but a single regret. “I’m sorry I don’t have more money to give away,’’ he told the Globe in 2004."

    Related reading, Tracy Kidder's Mountains Beyond Mountains. Great book.
