We find out today that Ashley Judd, she of the Kentucky basketball fandom and movies running in the woods from Morgan Freeman, will be attending Harvard this fall at the John F. Kennedy School of Government. The graduate program is designed to foster careers in public service and is a place that foreign leaders often attend with American students to study issues of governmental service. Judd is on a one year plan and will become the best Harvard-ite since one Legally Blonde young lady.
Good for Ashley. Whatever you think of her political beliefs (and I happen to agree with most, but not all), you almost never see those in the Hollywood realm do anything except talk about the issues and principles they believe in. Ashley acts on her beliefs, and thus gets a great deal of props from me. Now if she will just make those games at Vanderbilt a little less painful.
