Denzel Washington ~ A True Hero (great story) 2nd post

Remember this next time you walk up to the ticket window of your local movie theater with $10 in your hand.
The Media (Accidently?)Missed this one!!!!
Please read this:
The troops oversees would like you to send it to everybody you know. Subject: Denzel Washington, and Brooks Army Medical Center Don't know whether you heard about this but Denzel Washington and his family visited the troops at Brook Army Medical Center , in San Antonio, Texas (BAMC) the other day. This is where soldiers who have been evacuated fromGermany come to be hospitalized in the UnitedStates, especially burn victims There are somebuildings there called Fisher Houses. The FisherHouse is a Hotel where soldiers' families can stay,for little or no charge, while their soldier is stayingin the Hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houseson base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filledmost of the time.While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gavehim a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked howmuch one of them would cost to build. He took his checkbook out and wrote a check for the full amount right thereon the spot. The soldiers overseas were amazed to hearthis story and want to get the word out to the Americanpublic, because it warmed their hearts to hear it
The question is - why do:Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton,Tom Cruise and other Hollywood fluff make front page news with their ridiculous antics and Denzel Washington's Patriotism doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section ofany newspaper except the Local newspaper in SanAntonio .
