"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

"I went through villages when I first got here and noticed that some of the kids didn’t have shoes," said Sgt. William Bailey, 29, of Logan Utah.
"Some of them had holes in their shoes and others cut out the backs so their feet could hang over and still have something solid to stand on."
Sgt. Baily along with the military arranged for a humanitarian project to donate 800 shoes to Iraqi kids who couldn't afford to travel to the nearest shoe store to purchase a pair. Many of the kids ran back to school in order to pick up a new pair of "kicks."
By the time the soldiers carried boxes of shoes into a classroom, there were more than a dozen kids swarming about. School principal Galawezh Ja’far Qader watched the excitement.
Shoes are "a very useful thing," Qader said through an interpreter. "They get torn easily because of the mountains."
Good news (and good deeds) like these often do not make the airwaves of the MSM. Although Michelle notably points out that the NY Times did feature some good news out of Iraq. Congrats to Chrenkoff.
