The Indepundit: "Since the closing of Fran O'Brien's (Boycott Hilton!) in April, the Friday dinner [for recuperating wounded veterans -- StY] has been somewhat of a traveling feast. It's been hosted by various restaurants and other venues around town, including the Italian and Thai embassies. Many community leaders have ponied up to sponsor one or several meals; the troops and their families never pay a dime."

Now there'as a human interest story for someone. (Emphasis mine, by the way.)

Behavior of the Hilton corp in this matter aside, this new way to go about hosting this thing strikes me as even better. I have nothing but Kudos for Fran Obrien's for what they did but it seems to me a wonderful thing that so many and diverse benefactors have stepped up to serve those who served.

Now, it's time to go off and find out how to contribute if only in some small way.
