Chuck Norris

This is probably not what you think it might be. I've heard a lot of Chuck Norris talk today on the interwebs, and just wanted to relate this story. A cousin of mine had a son who had cancer, name of Caleb. Now this was in the early 1990's, when "Walker, Texas Ranger" was big on TV. Caleb was in the make a wish foundation, or maybe starlight, honestly I'm not sure. All he wanted to do was get Chuck Norris' autograph, and maybe meet him. When Chuck Norris' representative was contacted, she said that Mr. Norris doesn't do that sort of thing. Well, people were stunned, but it was Hollywood. But the story is only beginning. Somehow, Chuck found out about this conversation. Turns out, the representative for him was very new, and fired on the spot. As it turns out, Chuck loves to do this sort of thing. And this is how much. All that was asked for was an autograph, maybe meet him. What Caleb got: Several in person bed side visits. More posters and autographs than you could shake a stick at. Video tapes made on the set of "Walker, Texas Ranger", by Chuck himself, having the cast and crew wish Caleb a speedy recovery. This continued, not a one time thing, for the rest of Caleb's life, which was about a year after that I believe. Now I love Chuck Norris Facts as much as anyone (Fact: Chuck Norris has no chin under his beard, just another fist), but the real man is far greater than any "Fact".
