…the guy goes and pays for a young soldier’s college education — three years in advance. Baldwin was so moved by a March 4 New York Times feature (reprinted here) on Resha Kane’s last day with friends and family before shipping overseas for three years that he personally tracked down her mom and has arranged to meet her in person next week. Baldwin has criticized the war in Iraq but wants to demonstrate his support for the troops. We like Kane’s mom’s use of “shock and awe” in the context of Alec Baldwin. The question is, would Baldwin’s 30 Rock character pull a move like this? In other words, WWJDD?
