Star Reporter

So how on earth has Sean Penn become an intrepid roving journalist for the SF Chronicle?

In fact, it's a fairly thoughtful piece, and (happily) free of "I am a Moooovie Star" attitude. I guess that Penn was curious about Iran and used his clout (and his prior experience as a reporter for the Chronicle (he went to Iraq last year and reported back) to go see for himself. Which is laudable, I guess. It's just hard to resist a shrug of bemusement/disbelief/cynicism at the bold headline "Sean Penn in Iran" on the front page.
