Stick To Celebrities

Update: Now that this post has been picked up at (thanks Ed) it'll be interesting to see if TMZ includes this story in their tv broadcast tonight. They received an overwhelming amount of pro-military comments to their post even before the bigger blogs picked it up. We'll see if they have the balls to include it, in all it's anti-military glory, in a national broadcast.


The celebrity stalking website TMZ posts on the Navy's efforts to recover the remains of lost WWII airmen in the South Pacific, their hook being that "former "Bachelor" bachelor Andy Baldwin" is part of the dive team involved in the operation.

Former "Bachelor" bachelor Andy Baldwin just got back from the island of Palau in the South Pacific -- not on vacation, on a mission with the Navy. Now let's talk about why we the taxpayers are footing the bill on such BS.

Baldwin was among 20 military types who were on a search mission in the middle of the ocean. What, you ask, were they looking for? A B-24J bomber that went down during the war. Not Iraq. Not Vietnam. No, not Korea. We're talking WWII, as in more than 60 years ago.
TMZ has a survey on the site asking "Ridiculous waste? Yes / No". So far the vote is split 50/50, but the comment section is overwhelmingly pro military and anti TMZ rant. In fact as of 8:52am (pacific time) you have to scroll down to comment 23 before you find one commenter that agrees with TMZ.
