Sean Penn Unhappy

And that's news?

Anyway, the current objects of his displeasure are Trey Parker and Matt Stone for "Team America: World Police."

I do mind when anybody who doesn't have a child, doesn't have a child at war, or isn't or won't be in harm's way themselves, is encouraging that there's "no shame in not voting" "if you don't know what you're talking about" (Mr. Stone) without mentioning the shame of not knowing what your talking about, and encouraging people to know. You guys are talented young guys but alas, primarily young guys. It's all well to joke about me or whomever you choose. Not so well, to encourage irresponsibility that will ultimately lead to the disembowelment, mutilation, exploitation, and death of innocent people throughout the world. The vote matters to them. No one's ignorance, indcluding a couple of hip cross-dressers, is an excuse.

All best, and a sincere (deleted - ed.) you,

Sean Penn

P.S. Take this as a personal invitation from me to you (you can ask Dennis Miller along for the ride as well) to escort you on a trip, which I took last Christmas. We'll fly to Amman, Jordan and I'll ride with you in a (?) 12 hours through the Sunni Triangle into Fallujah and Baghdad and I'll show you around. When we return, make all the fun you want.

Mr. Penn, I think it's pretty hypocritical of you to talk about the shame of not knowing. it doesn't matter where you go if you are blind to what's going on around you. A trip for Christmas? OK. When you enlist and serve a year on the ground in Iraq, then I'll think you have a leg up on me. Or maybe we can just ask an Iraqi.
