92-Year-Old Pirates DVDs To Send To Troops

Normally we do not condone piracy but, at least in this case, this guy deserves props for pirating. How many DVDs has this 92 year old man sent to our troops overseas? More than 300,000 since 2004. Damn shame the actual movie studios didn't send a single movie to our troops in the same time period. frown

"It's not the right thing to do, but I did it," says a 92-year-old man from New York who has become something of a folk hero to the soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq who have been on the receiving end of thousands of DVDs he pirated for their use. "If I were younger... maybe I'd be spending time in the hoosegow." He estimates that he's copied and shipped more than 300,000 discs since he started his operation in 2004.
