Something you won't see on the MSM

John at Castle Argghhh! clued us in this morning about some Good News from the Celebrity world, which you aren't likely to see on the news. It turns out that Denzel Washington, one of the good guys of Hollywood, has put his money where his mouth is. Kudos to a celebrity worthy of emulation!

Also, Blackfive reported the shameful story of protestors at a local community college disrupting Army recruiter Sgt. 1st Class Jeff Due last month. I listened to local radio host Kirby Wilbur of KVI talking with Sgt. Due this morning. What you won't see printed in the paper is the number of times that he and his fellow recruiters have visited, both in the past and since Jan. 20, with no protestors or disruption of their efforts. You also won't hear about the fact that the school administration first demanded that the student protest group apologize to the recruiters, then backed down when the group refused. Wieners!

I have to say that the Rules of Engagement for a recruiter suck big time - at least on the battlefield you can shoot back at the terrorists! Bravo, Sgt. Due - carry on!
