Denzel Washington visits Army Hospital

Since I just got the e-mail in my in-box from a friend, I thought it would be a good time to point out that not all of the Hollywood crowd are the typical "limousine Liberal" type.

The e-mail comes with some exaggerations, but the core issues are true, especially the question:

"why does Alec Baldwin, Madonna, Sean Penn and other Hollywood types make front page news with their anti-everything America crap and this doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of any newspaper except the base newspaper in San Antonio "

(Actually the story appears to have been carried by WOAI-TV.)

The Urban Legends page referring to the visit

Also worth noting is a quote from the "snopes" page: [Fisher House President David Coker] said the fact that Washington, 49, did not write a check 'on the spot' does not diminish his contribution to the Fisher House and his support 'for the men and women who serve our country.'

I agree.
