Thanks to the “Chuck Norris Facts,” I have been able to really connect with younger generations. If you’ve missed reading these, the Chuck Norris Facts are mythical expressions of my life and abilities, created by and perpetuated by young people. They are a phenomenon of the Internet and a testament to its power. Though the whole new media revolution is a bit overwhelming to me, I have benefited greatly from its clout. I was honored twice to visit our troops in Iraq, where I was gratified to learn that the Chuck Norris Facts provide a daily dose of levity and encouragement to our troops. They continue to do so at remote military outposts in Afghanistan.
