CBS News Story: Lady Gaga funding classroom projects for children of mass-shooting victims.

Lady Gaga announced Friday that she will "fully fund" classroom projects in Dayton, Ohio, El Paso, Texas, and Gilroy, California ... "My heart goes out to those who were taken from us too soon and to their families, loved ones and communities who are left to grieve ... everyone has the right to laws that make them feel safe in their communities," the singer said ... the project will span 14 classrooms in Dayton, 125 classrooms in El Paso and 23 classrooms in Gilroy.

Lady Gaga is a real Sweet Pea. I also wish the same thing.

There are plenty of wealthy philanthropists. Not all of them make the headlines.

Both President Roosevelts were aristocratically wealthy.

Both were social liberals yet pragmatists.

Franklin, especially, was beloved by many—and he spoke with a “snooty” accent.
