News you can use. The Anti-Baldwin

Denzel Washington on occasion will make political pronouncements that make me wince, but not often. And even if he was the Moonbat Baldwin or Streisand are, I'd forgive much for this.

Danzel Washington was visiting BAMC (Brooke Army Medical Center, in San Antonio) the other day. This is where soldiers that have been evac'd from Germany come to be hospitalized in the States. They have buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher House is a hotel that soldier's families can stay at, for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying in the hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled to the brim most of the time. While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how much one of them would cost to build. He got his check book out and wrote a check out for the full amount right there on the spot. The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear this story and want to get the word out to the American public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it.

As is my habit with things like this, I checked Snopes, where they have more on the story. Mebbe I'll go watch Glory again...
