Again with the Holiday Appeal

Yes, we're sure you get bombarded with "requests" to buy tickets to Christmas parties. And there is always some cookie or candy sale going on for someone's kid. And there is definitely NO shortage of retirements or medical fundraisers going on at any given time. But this is something people have contacted us about and it bears repeating. Below are some addresses that you can send pre-paid phone cards to defer the cost of calls home for wounded military personnel.

Medical Family Assistance Center - Walter Reed Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20307-5001
(202) 782-3501

National Naval Medical Center
8901 Wisconsin Avenue
Bethesda, Maryland 20814
(301) 295-4611

There are also thousands of active duty military folks that could use a hand. Check out www.uso.com and www.usocares.org to see how you can help our men and women overseas and away from home during the holiday season. It only takes a couple minutes, a couple dollars and a couple stamps to make someone's day.

NEW YORK Dec 10, 2005 — A dozen years ago, Lillo Brancato Jr. was going to be a star.

The unknown actor earned critical acclaim opposite his idol, Robert De Niro, in the 1993 movie "A Bronx Tale." He played the Oscar winner's son in the story of a teen torn between two role models a local mobster and his dad in a heavily Italian Bronx neighborhood.

From there, Brancato went on to appear in more than a dozen films, including "Renaissance Man," "Crimson Tide," "Enemy of the State" and "The Adventures of Pluto Nash." He later had a recurring role on "The Sopranos," where his character was eventually executed by fictional mob boss Tony Soprano in one of the series' more memorable departures.

But on Saturday, the actor was far from the bright lights and red carpets of Hollywood. Instead, police said, he was breaking into a vacant house with another man when a gunfight erupted. An off-duty police officer who responded was killed, and Brancato, who police said was unarmed, was in critical condition after being shot twice.

Brancato was just 16 when De Niro launched a search for nonprofessionals to appear in his 1993 directorial debut, the film version of Chazz Palminteri's play "A Bronx Tale." Brancato was discovered by a casting director strolling along a New York beach; he came out of the water and wowed him with impressions of De Niro and Joe Pesci.

In a New York Times profile, Brancato was described as "friendly, earnest, sweet-tempered, a fast talker, a salesman, the kind of goofy tough guy who once upon a time used to hang out on a city street corner."

Brancato, now 29, was born in Bogota, Colombia, and adopted when he was 4 months old. He was raised in Yonkers and still lived in the city just north of the Bronx.

In 1999-2000, he appeared in a half-dozen episodes of "The Sopranos" as the dim-witted aspiring mobster Matt Bevilacqua. In one episode, his character worked a high-stakes card game where the players included Frank Sinatra Jr.

Brancato also starred in the short-lived TV mob show "Falcone" and guest-starred in a 2002 episode of "NYPD Blue."

I'll bet you $1,000.00 Arnold doesn't pull the switch. The thugs have already said that they will burn the city down if he fries and as we all know, theres no politician that has the balls to do the right thing when confronted with an upset group of liberals or thugs.

You mean no "liberal" politician has the balls. Arnold will do it to shore up his conservative credentials and he'll mobilize the California Guard to keep the peace.
