Little more than detox
Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn, Cindy Sheehan and Dick Gregory (so what else is new?) are going on a hunger strike to bring the troops home. In a press release, the groups says that they will "be showing our patriotism by putting our bodies on the line to bring our troops home."
But in typical West Coast fashion, those famous bodies are just going to stick a toe on that line and then beat it to Spago for an eight o'clock table. It is a rolling hunger strike. You just go on the Hollywood diet for 24 hours (a mere half shift) and pass it to someone else. No hushed nation need anxiously wait to see if Susan and Spicoli make it.
What I am wondering is why this guy's not on board.
