Rob Lowe just helpin' out
With a few clever camera angles, both KEYT and KSBY TV news deliberately included Friend-of-Arnold and my-address-is-more-important-than-your-address Rob Lowe in the background when The Arnold visited the emergency session of the County Board of Supervisors today. The Governor of California made a point of praising the cooperation among fire protection agencies and personally approving the Emergency declaration that the County just requested.
Fair enough, and that is nice and all, but what was Lowe really doing there? He wasn't filling the pitchers with tap water so no one had to drink water from plastic bottles that would fill up Tajiguas landfill, was he?
Of course, maybe Lowe and Arnold were just on their way to the Chumash Casino or someplace nice like that? However, I simply cannot imagine that any local newspaper or TV news station actually would interview and quote Rob Lowe, as if he had anything relevant and credible to say about a raging wildfire breaking through its containment lines and possibly threatening the coastal cities.
Naaahhhh! No local newspaper would actually **interview** and **quote** ROB LOWE about the wildfire emergency when the room there was full of actual community leaders and emergency response professionals who actually might know what they were talking about, if only asked.
No respectable newspaper would do that, would it?
