BREAKING: Dolly Parton, Betty White, and Steve Irwin's Daughter, All Still Wholesome As Heck
Well, folks, I am pleased to inform you all that there is still a whole lot of good that has happened over the past week, that despite popular conceptions, there is so much more to life than impeachments, domestic terrorist attacks, and every terror du jour of the past 9 days.
First up, Dolly Parton may finally earn the recognition she deserves as America's sweetheart, potentially getting her own statue outside of the Capitol building in her home state of Tennessee. On Tuesday, Democratic Representative John Mark Windle presented a bill to honor the country legend, racial justice advocate, childhood literacy promoter, and vaccine champion via a commemorative statue for "all that she has contributed to this state," the Associated Press reported. Although the details of the statue's specifics would be decided by the state capitol commission, the monument would not be paid for through taxpayer money, being expensed through a fund created by the bill, and will also likely face towards the Ryman Auditorium, where Parton has performed.
"At this point in history, is there a better example, not just in America but in the world, of a leader that is (a) kind, decent, passionate human being?" the lawmaker said earlier this week. "(She's) a passionate person who loves everyone, and everyone loves her." Between her consistent advocacy for those in need, apparent dedication to kindness, and her absolutely beautiful voice, what's not to love! Remember, folks, the expression "What Would Dolly Do" exists for a reason.
