Helen Thomas gets 108 dozen roses
Sometimes a story just touches your heart and you must share it. This is one of those times.
Members of Democratic Underground (along with some Kossacks) got together and sent Helen Thomas 108 dozen roses for asking Bush and Scotty the tough questions, and for all her grace under pressure.
She sent the following note in response:
Blessed are the peacemakers. The bounty of beautiful roses from such wonderful people has lifted my heart and will remain in my memory for the rest of my life. Thank you for caring that others may live.

Eternally classy, Thomas donated the flowers to the wounded military personnel at Walter Reed Army Hospital. What a great lady.
