I originally commented on Mr. Penn's rescue attire here: Sean Penn and his Bulletproof Vest
This morning the NY Post has pictures of MR. Penn, who is still in New Orleans, participating in the rescue operation, in his own way.
All I can say is that Mr. Penn needs to fire whoever is looking after his image and safety. First, if there is still a danger, what happened to his bulletproof vest? I suspect that it is in the wash. White bulletproof vests soil easily. But dirty vests still stop bullets. You would think that if there is a need to carry a shotgun, then there is a possibility of being shot.
Doesn't this guy have a bodyguard? Leave the weapon to him, and Sean can carry out is rescue work.....
