Denzel 'da man!

I confess to having a nearly irresistable urge to skip reading anything that involves a Hollywood star — the probability is just too high that the story will involve outrageously inappropriate behavior by someone who is adored by millions (and who makes millions). These stories infuriate me.

But here's a story I'm glad I decided to read: Denzel Washington (an actor whose work I've long admired) just doing a little bit to to help our soldiers. Way to go, Denzel! From Gateway Pundit:

Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC (Brooke Army Medical Center, in San Antonio,Texas) the other day. This is where soldiers that have been evac'd from Germany come to be hospitalized in the States, especially burn victims.

They have buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher House is a hotel where soldiers' families can stay, 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 completely filled 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 took his check book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there on the spot.
