Barbara is a Class Act

Well here is a story to gladden the heart of my prolific penpal Simbaud.

On this Valentine's Day Sen. Boxer Showered With Flowers:
Nearly 2,400 roses were delivered to the senator's office as part of the Barbara Boxer rose campaign.

It all started with an e-mail campaign to several Internet blogs.

Then, a national online florist set up a special phone line.

Boxer said she will send the flowers to Bethesda Naval Hospital and Walter Reed Army Medical Center which treat soldiers wounded in Iraq.

I think that is a beautiful gesture.

Yeah, nothing to make you forget a blown-off limb in an unjustified war in which your Commando in Chief has basically pulled your medical benefits out from under your feet and is making you pay for your meals while you're on administrative bedhold for a year than some fast-rotting vegetation.

Sorry, but these 100,000+ wounded kids need a lot more than fucking hearts and flowers. Go to http://www.anysoldier.com and make a *real* contribution to the poor kids who are still over there.
