Why, o why, o why do we not get the opportunity for this type of thing in Europe? For pity's sake, Jean-luc is French after all, isn't he?

"Disaster fatigue" is a shower of bollocks. I'm badly paraphrasing Billy Connolly, but it's not as if people think "Oh, there's been too much disaster lately. I've been compassionate enough. I'll have to be hard-hearted this month." You can never run out of compassion for people because compassion is not finite - you don't have less of it by giving it away. If you can afford to give, "disaster fatigue" is a rationalisation, not a reason not to.
