Sean Penn provides Comic Relief!!!

On second thought, what the hell was he thinking (assuming he could think beyond "HEY EVERYONE LOOK AT ME")? Sean Penn came very close to making the problem worse.

I would ask the good actor, who among his entourage is an EMT, trained in law enforcement, swift water rescue and/or the professional(aka military)use of firearms? None I would bet. How about giving that boat to someone actually who knew what they were doing?

If Sean Penn would really like to make a difference, he should ditch the entourage (including the personal photographer), and study Eddie Van Halen's example. That 50-something former rocker is now a paramedic for the City of New York. No doubt, Eddie is handling the average, boring calls that are the vast majority of the EMS dispatches, but at least he is quietly making a difference - with no personal photographer.

EVH is a paramedic in NYC??? Last I heard he was fighting throat cancer living in Port Jefferson Long Island.
And good old Mr. Penn; wasn't he on a photo op tour of Iran just a few short days ago. Guess he realized the coverage had moved to New Orleans (unless somewhere in Iran became flooded and he is still there bailing).

I read an article on EVH last fall, which mentioned he was finishing his training as a NYC paramedic. I also recall reading EVH had a rough spell, with a divorce and a health crisis.

babs is correct. The Van Halen member who is now a NYC paramedic is David Lee Roth, not Eddie Van Halen. my apolegies.

How priceless would it have been if he had to have his ass trussed up in a helo's recovery sling while the boat--and his lackeys--were left flailing in the muck?

Or better yet, he and his crew got boatjacked?
