When everyone wins, why to liberals still have to find something wrong?

A letter writer to Slate’s do-gooder dilemmas column writes:

What is the deal with the main New York Public Library building now being called the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building? This is a beloved landmark, not some brand-new college science building. Schwarzman basically bought this honor by giving $100 million. So is this a good or a bad thing?

Well, let’s see: the library gets more money, which it can use to share more books with the people.  An evil rich person has less money.  No one had to give up anything except a meaningless symbol.  You’re seriously considering that these benefits may not be worth the fact that some rich guy might get his ego stroked a little bit?
