Just when you’ve gotten tired of the commercialization of Christmas, and of all the wars on Christmas and the Christians celebrating it by the Limp-wristed Lickspittle Left™, etc, etc, ad infinitum, ad nauseam  – along comes this story of a random shopper’s generosity towards a Marine.

A Marine who’s planning to marry a Texan got an early Christmas present: A fellow shopper picked up the tab for a $3,000 diamond engagement ring after the two struck up a conversation in a jewelry store.

The 54-year-old Dallas woman who paid for the 1-carat, princess cut diamond ring wants to remain anonymous, Helzberg Diamonds spokeswoman Stacey McBride told The Associated Press on Friday.

The woman’s father was in the military, her brother was a Marine who died in Vietnam and her nephew just got back from Iraq, McBride said.

Now that’s  what I call supporting the troops.

And to that wonderful lady:  Standing you to a beer may be a bit déclassé  – but I’ll happily treat you to a Starbucks anytime you’d like.

And both the Denizens and the LCs would be willing to do likewise, I’d think.

Merry Christmas, guyz.

    Once more we see that there is much good in the American People.
