Baldwin was so moved by a March 4 New York Times story about Pvt. Resha Kane’s last day with family and friends before going for training to prepare for serving in Iraq that he – not his people – tracked down Kane’s mother at a discount store where she works to offer his assistance, his spokesman said.
“I didn’t know what to say,” said Patricia Kane, Resha Kane’s mother. “And then I asked him if he could send me his autograph. I’ve never met a star, let alone talked to one on the phone.”
That is very very nice and kind of Alec to do but i got a feeling he did this because he is a known war critic, and the next time someone says “you don’t support the troops” he can always pull out this card. I have a cousin headed to Iraq in a few weeks (HUCK!) so please don’t tell me I’m against the troops or hate America whatever.
