I know it’s out-of-character for me to write something nice about a celebrity. I’m sure I will get “deep-fried” for this post but here goes.
Alec Baldwin did a nice thing for a soldier who is leaving for Iraq. Baldwin was moved by a story he read in the New York Times about Private Resha Kane’s last day with her family before going to training camp for Iraq. He felt so strongly about the story that he has offered to pay for her college when her service in Iraq is finished.
“I didn’t know what to say,” said Patricia Kane, Resha Kane’s mother. “And then I asked him if he could send me his autograph. I’ve never met a star, let alone talked to one on the phone.”
This hurts me to report this as I think Baldwin has been kind of a jerk with some of his comments about the war in Iraq. Everyone is against the war but I think he has crossed the line at times.
I’m ready. Go ahead and tell me what you think.
