I've never really been a fan of Larry the Cable Guy. He seems rude and crude and obnoxious. He is a fellow Nebraskan but I've always felt my state was better represented buy the other celebreties from here (people like Johnny Carson, Dick Cavett, Fred Astaire, Marlon Brando, Warren Buffett, Henry Fonda, Willa Cather, Mari Sandoz, Darryl F. Zanuck, Chief Red Cloud, and Malcolm X). And his accent gives me a headache; I've lived here all my life and I've never heard anybody speak like that. HOWEVER, I've had to alter my opinion. I have a friend who is accompanying her uncle this weekend on an honor flight to Washington Difficult Child. This is a program where World War II Veterans are taken to the new World War II Memorial and to many of the other sites in Washington and wined and dined and honored. I know that many places are trying to provide these programs for WW II vets and there are many fundraisers to provide the money as it is free for the vets. There has been a lot of coverage of this particular trip on our local TV stations. This group is made up of over 100 Nebraska WW II vets and the people accompanying them (many are old enough to need assistance). They told on TV last night that Larry the Cable Guy paid for this entire group out of his own pocket. I'm sure he didn't do it for the publicity and I think it was really a classy thing for him to do. Maybe he's not so bad after all. I think he deserves a pat on the back.
