  • Rumor has it....

       August 23, 2004 has learned from a reliable source that singer Norah Jones recently paid a visit to the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland to visit with American soldiers injured while fighting for freedom in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other far flung corners of the world.

    Ms. Jones made this visit with absolutely no fanfare at all - her agent didn't draft a press release and she didn't brag about it to the media. While we don't pretend to know her motivations, we can only assume that Ms. Jones made the trip out of genuine admiration and gratitude for the sacrifice that our fine young men made for not only their own nation but for freedom loving people everywhere.

    We don't know Ms. Jones' personal politics, but regardless of what they are, this was an admirable, honorable, and applaudable act on her part.

    We wanted to relay this story to you because we think that it's a refreshing change of pace from the usual America-hating Squawking Singer antics that the media normally reports. Think that the Dixie Chicks or Barbara Streisand would ever do the same thing? Not a chance.

    You might think to yourself, "there should be more singers/people like Norah Jones out there." You're right, there should be. But also keep in mind, there are probably a lot more out there than you think - you just never hear about them.

    Huh. I think I'll buy her CD now rather than just download it.

    I'd hit it.

    Oh wait, that wasn't really the point, was it...

    We at Dummocrats would much rather you hit Norah than say, Natalie Maines. Give the conservative (or at least patriotic) girls some love.

    After dating an NEA member for 5 years, who was more upset that Smarty Jones lost than that Ronald Reagan died, I must say that suggestion sounds like a fantastic idea.

    Hold on there, Joe! You might not want to give up a girl who's into horse racing. You can always cancel out her vote ;-)

    No, she wasn't a horse racing fan, just a Smarty follower. There was local news interest in the story, so the whole Philly region was flooded with coverage.
