Congress to Vote on Giving Arnold Palmer a Gold Congressional Medal Today

Some good can come from our nation's capital, no mater what your politics are: sometime today, the US House of Representatives is set to vote to give Arnold Palmer an award for his service to the country through golf.

The Thomas Register has the story:
H.R. 1243 - To provide for the award of a gold medal on behalf of Congress to Arnold Palmer in recognition of his service to the Nation in promoting excellence and good sportsmanship in golf.
The bill is sure to pass, as there are 302 co-sponsors of it, and later today, Mr. Palmer will get another bit of commendation for all he has done for the game. Palmer has already won the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, and it was awarded to him by George W. Bush in June, 2004. At the time, Mr. Palmer joined the likes of Nelson Mandela, Hank Aaron, concentration camp survivor Simon Wiesenthal and many others in the heady company that the distinguished award's alumni share.

Good for Arnold, and good for golf.
