Outstanding people amongst us

I have told you before that I HATE tabloids and refuse to buy them no matter how "enticing" their headlines may read. If more people would leave them on the racks, eventually the publication companies would run out of money to print them. Unfortunately, I don't see that happening any time soon. Too many, pardon my word, IDIOTS out there actually put stock in them as being factual. Get a grip, folks, those publications are sick fairy tales to capture customers' attention and cash!!!

I'm not going to go into detail about the horrible plight of the Haitian people right now. Plenty of news people are detailing it all over TV, Radio, newspapers, etc. Just a few minutes ago, I had to make a trip to the school to drop off Abigayle's water bottle and her reading journal. Par for us, our radio was turned on in the van. A dee jay told all listening that Brad Pitts and his significant other, Angelina Jolie, have donated ONE MILLION DOLLARS to Doctors Without Borders to aide in the recovery and medical treatment of the survivors there. Lance Armstrong, the famous bicyclist, has donated 1/4 of a million dollars ($250,000) to the people there. We're not talking small potatoes here, folks. BIG dollars have been shared to help the very many people in desperate need right now.

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sick of reading the headlines of the tabloids about these people and others! So, you tell me, DON'T READ THEM THEN. That's hard to avoid doing since everytime I stand in a check-out line at a grocery store, WALMART, etc, they're slapping me in the face!!!

I cannot vouch for the characters of Mr. Armstrong and most of the tabloid victims, but I do have a very good friend who is a PERSONAL FRIEND of Brad and Angelina! She has told me that the garbage in these tabloids about them is just that, GARBAGE. There is no truth to it. They are very nice, kind and people who are truly in love with one another. This million dollars is not their first charitable contribution to mankind. Quite the contrary. Every year, they not only send HUGE amounts of money overseas and here at home to such organizations as Save the Children, they send themselves as well. That's right, guys! They actually go to very poor and hurt countries and actually WORK with their very own hands to better someone else's life. They're not afraid to get their very own hands dirty.

So the next time that you are tempted to reach your hand out to grab one of those disgusting "rags" in the newstand, raise your other hand and slap it for doing it! LOL!

Yeah, you know, that's just another of my many opinions, like it or not!
