I ask this question in this non-football related posting today.
Where’s Hollywood at? When New Orleans was under water and there were all sorts of social issues surrounding Hurricane Katrina, Hollywood types like Sean Penn, the people who felt like they had to act important, rushed down there and floated up and down the rivers with shotgun in hand acting like they were making a difference.
Now the heartland is ravaged by the same cruel act of mother nature, towns are under water, levees are broken, people’s livelyhoods are distroyed. Where’s Sean Penn offering to help. Where’s George Clooney coming on TV and raising money?
Is it because Iowa and all the affected areas around them aren’t commercially recognized tourists attractions like N.O.?
Hollywood would rush to save some overseas country, but they can’t help out their own in the midwest when needed?
Just something to think about…
