Show some love this Christmas season.

John Kerry isn't.

Nor is the child who sent the "I hope you die" card to Joshua Sparling at Walter Reed. I'm not kidding.

But, there are countless organizations through which you can send your love, your kind words, your DVDs, your cookies, your phone card minutes, and your thanks to these guys and gals. I have used Any Soldier and it's really helpful. Individual soldiers post their needs and wants on the site so you know you're getting them something they'll like. I've heard great things about Soldiers' Angels, too. 20 days 'til Christmas...

UPDATE: Smash took on Code Pink outside the Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego to show his support. Code Pink fled.
