Christmas came early at 7th and Montana today as Howard and Cathy led a neighborhood effort to support the troops in Iraq by sending them holiday gift packages.  This year, 60 Lucky Soldiers will receive stockings chock full of useful and fun surprises ranging from skin cream and deodorant to paper, pens and books.  For my part, I donated a bunch of DVD movies, TV shows and music videos from a supply of discs that the studios are no longer promoting.  While Howard and Cathy seemed thrilled with my contribution, I must admit I had an ulterior motive.  After watching the likes of "Flight of the Living Dead," "Megadeth in Concert," and "Mormons:  A Documentary," I'm sure the troops will come rushing home in no time ...!

A Recovering American soldier
