The Malibu Millionaires Go Surfing.

Honestly, this has become so tedious that initially I was inclined to overlook it. However, I have so much ink invested in these guys already, I kind of have to acknowledge them. So here goes:

Yesterday Pierce Brosnan and a handful of other really, really rich Hollywood activists who are petrified that the proposed Cabrillo Port LNG terminal might in some way impact their really, really privileged lifestyle by obscuring their view, staged a protest at Surfrider Beach in Malibu.

This bizarre photo op included a bunch of surfers floating around in formation, and 46 year old, one-time A-list actress Darryl Hannah parading around in front of papparazzi in a wet suit.

The only truly notable thing about this protest is that we now know Dick Van Dyke is still alive and kicking. Glad to hear it... I always like him in those "stop, drop, and roll" fire prevention videos he did in the 70's and 80's.

By the way, we still need access to cheap, clean alternative energy sources.
