    Watching "Only in America" with Larry the Cable Guy who's touring the Pentagon, and also in the office of my representative in Nebraska. Great show. For those of you older serving and retired service members, remember when you could walk the halls of the Pentagon by simply showing your Military ID?

    The Pentagon had great displays of historical things etc. along the halls, a mall, and a Best Buy!

    The only thing about Larry's show, he could have dressed up a little bit better. Saying that, Larry's a stand up guy for the military and my state.

    Watching it myself...he really isn't funny anymore. The fake accent and stupidity were played-out about 10 years ago.

    Home town is Pawnee City, NE. That's why he's a Nebraska fan. He's got a skybox at Husker Stadium and frequently invites military personnel to watch games. He has donated millions to worthy causes in the state. Larry donated money to fund/build a pediatric wing to a pediatric rehab facility in Lincoln, NE, as well as a women's shelter as well.

    My wife had the pleasure of being in a meeting with him. He's a stand up guy. Yes he has a persona that he uses for show business, but he's a stand up guy for worthy causes. Dan has a big heart.

    I think that Walt is mixing up Larry with Bill Engvall. the story I heard was Bill was born in Baltimore when his dad was with NIH or some other agency.

    I also watched bits and pieces of the show but he really wasn't funny.
