Kudos to entertainer Dolly Parton for her generosity this week. Her Dollywood Foundation will donate $1,000 a month (for the next six months) to EVERY family that lost their home in the wildfires that devastated the Gatlinburg area last week.
I spent some time in Gatlinburg a couple years ago, and enjoyed the friendly residents and the spectacular mountain scenery. It's really a tragedy seeing all the death and destruction that's torn through the area.
I was never a big fan of Dolly's music— nothing against it, mind you, it's just not to my taste— but I've always liked her a lot and have been impressed by her many achievements. This donation just makes her that much more awesome. Too bad Dolly didn't run for President!
