Think what you want of his politics, but this is wonderful.   He cares





Former President George H.W. Bush has shaved his head in solidarity with 2-year-old son of a member of his 20 person security detail.

The young boy, named Patrick, is undergoing treatment for leukemia and has lost his hair. He was diagnosed this spring.

Bush donated money to the cause and even volunteered to shave his head, according to Bush spokesman Jim McGrath. 

Patrick's prognosis is good, and to help with medical bills a website has been set up for those who would like to donate to the cause: www.patrickspals.org.

McGrath says that more pictures of the newly-shorn 41st president could be on the way.

I adore him and Barbara. They are wonderful human beings.  Like you said, even if you don't agree with their politics, they are an amazing couple.
