Bullhorns...of course! Nobody has radio or television in New Orleans!

Silly Sean, the bullhorns were on the buses the mayor let be drowned in Lake Nagin.

So what Jefferson was saying was "Hey! You know, we left this England place because it was bogus. So if we don't get some cool rules ourselves, pronto, we'll just be bogus too." Yeah?

Couldn't we, just this once, have a tragic "Celebrity Casualty" during a crisis like this? I think it would be just the thing to Bring America Together. ;)

Bullhorns are 1960s technology... every squad car now has a built in PA system that is more powerful and clearer than the bullhorns.

Everyone is an expert. Bullhorns would be nice, but the noise from boats and helicopters probably is probably a good substitute.

If the hurricane had been taken seriously, we wouldn't have so many people trapped.

Bullhorns do not move people. They have to move themselves. The only ones who can blame the government are the infirm and children.

Well, he's sort of right... The local government should've been out in force all weekend assisting and facilitating the evacuation. The bullhorns would have been as useful as those school buses the local government allowed to be taken by the flooding. Neither were put into play.

Though come to think, NOLA may have a shortage of bull horns, but Mr. Penn has no shortage of bull corn.

HILLARY is now telling GRETA on FoX that the Media must keep this story up front so that the American People don't forget about our need to follow thru on this over the "months and years ahead."

Sean Penn's knowledge of the real world is apparently rather limited. He doesn't know that every squad car in New Orleans has a loudspeaker built in. Hasn't Penn ever watched cops, where in a dangerous situation the officer will stay in his car, and use his microphone to talk to the perp outside or in another car?

No, the lack in the City was not bullhorns. It was brains. Here's the equation: buses + time + a decision to use them = evacuation of everyone in New Orleans. On the other hand, buses + time - a decision to use them = flooded buses and dead citizens. I thought Penn was supposed to be a bright guy. Is this so hard to understand?

I went to college on the east coast. You can expand that perception to the whole south...

"Yep, they're in the Dark Ages down South."

How many times have libs said that poor people voted for Bush in spite of what was "best" for them.

From the Herald Sun (AU) article today to which Drudge linked:

With the boat loaded with members of Penn's entourage, including a personal photographer, one bystander taunted the actor: "How are you going to get any people in that thing?"

What a total tool.

I am no fan of Penn's, but as far as the bullhorns go, I think he's right. In a situation where modern, current means of communications have been undermined or rendered useless, it's not such a bad idea to hang on to those means which remain reliable.

I will take issue with his whining that a means of cleaning off his boat people should have been available. That was simply not possible. I have a feeling "eeeiiiuuuwww" and "icky-yuk" were his main thoughts as he rescued people. If he came down to take it upon himself to go looking for people, he should have brought his own protective gear. If he didn't, then he has no reason to complain.
