Day of Kindness. Kind of.

Tennessean columnist Beverly Keel has proposed that today be a "Day of Kindness" for Middle Tennessee:
As I mentioned in Thursday's column, I was inspired to create this after Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton recently discussed with me the cynicism that is so pervasive in our society. That sparked a thought: Wouldn't it be great if we had one day where everybody tried not to speak ill of anyone else? Well, that day is here, and if the response I've received from readers is any indication, it's not a moment too soon.
So in that spirit, let me say that I find John McCain's naïveté about the fundamentals of our economy cute and endearing. And I can totally respect Rep. Marsha Blackburn's vain attempts to distance herself from her party's bungling of the financial crisis—who wouldn't want to disown the current administration in an election year? Who can blame her? I forgive Sarah Palin for lying about her support for the Bridge to Nowhere and her record on earmarks. She's only doing what she has to. If she told the truth about her record, her level of experience and her involvement in Troopergate, wouldn't it be letting her party down? Just lay off least for a day anyway. And despite his violation of his contract with the Predators so he could rake in more rubles, I wish Alexander Radulov well with his future team in Bashkortostan, Russia. And most of all, Billy Bob, for our part, we'll forget Mr. Woodcock ever happened. Especially after your surprisingly good performance at the Levon Helm show the other night. I've done my part. What will YOU do to observe this Day of Kindness?
