Happy Independence Day, America! What a grateful nation we should be, especially on a day like today. Megyn Kelly had a group of 14 wounded warriors on her show to inspire us all. And to remind us why we are so grateful for the freedoms we have. It is because of men like this that we can celebrate being an American on this beautiful day.
This weekend on John Stossel’s show, he talked with Gary Sinise about all the philanthropic work he’s done with the troops, as well as the patriotic themes often seen on his hit show “CSY: NY.” Gary Sinise is one fantastic American, and I never knew just how many groups he was involved with until I saw this special with Stossel.
Honestly, when does this man sleep? Either way, I salute Gary Sinise and thank God for giving us such a special human being to look up to. If each of us could only give a 10th of what Gary Sinise gives to our fellow man, the whole world would be a brighter place.
Okay, I didn’t want to post a huge segment of last week’s CSI: NY episode, so I just grabbed the sweetest and best part of it. Former female lead, Melina Kanakaredes, was an Obama zombie so I wasn’t sad to see her go. This season in her place is the lovely Sela Ward. I’ve read somewhere that Ms. Ward is a conservative Republican, and I know that Gary Sinise is at least a very patriotic American. Sela’s new role this season is a demure yet very intelligent psychologist, I believe, and she has a very sweet southern accent.
So, some background for this episode: One of the lab techs was sneaking peaks at a webchat site similar to Chat Roulette (I think they called it “LookinAtChu”), when he starts watching a pretty girl play music and dance around the room. Suddenly someone enters the room and strangles her. That’s the background of the video so you’ll understand it.
At the end of the episode, Sela’s character is about to close up shop for the night, but she still has her “Chat Roulette” site up from having used it before during the investigation. The following scene then takes place, and I gotta tell you, I’ve watched it more than once. This was so outstanding I just had to grab it to share with others. Watch and enjoy.
Last night, Gary Sinise was on to promote the Building Homes for Heroes program, which is now focused on building a house for SPC Brendan Marrocco, the first quadruple amputee to survive. His home will be built on Staten Island.
This is a non-partisan issue, and you cannot deny that organizations like this and folks like Gary Sinise are the true American heroes for helping those among us who gave the most of themselves during times of war. Please visit their website to check out the programs and see if there’s a way you can help out.
Gary and his “Lt. Dan Band” are going to play a benefit concert this weekend on Saturday at the St. George Theatre in Staten Island at 8PM. If you want to attend, here’s the information:
