    If i could vote for cnn hero of the year, i would vote for my husband joe. When he first came up to me, i was in major depression. I had been praying for God to send me an angel. All of a sudden my life just changed. Now my husband has serious health problem's and i wish there was a way to show him my true and honest love. He went from being a hard worker to now it takes all he has to get out of bed. I love you Joe Jack Brownlee

    CNN Heroes could be the best show on television, at least the only one worth watching. I look forward to it each year since it launched, yet cringe at its commercialization. The question has to be asked. Does Time Warner really need to make money at the expense of some of the most outstanding individuals on this earth? How about donating your commercial time for these Heroes, Time Warner?

    Funny how CNN ran a commercial for a 10 dollar buffet right after Linda Fondren's speech on obesity. Classy...
