*******zennie2005.blogspot**** - Today, Easter Sunday, an after an affair that lasted for several days, American sea Captain Richard Phillips was rescued after NAVY Seal Snipers took three precision shots and killed three pirates from Somalia. In what can be described as a "growth industry" pirating in Somalia is a function of the country's lack of a government, weak economy, little military funding, and lack of financial aid from the World. In order to stop these attacks, the people of Somalia themselves must be helped. Conservative blogs and websites like "HotAir" have unintelligently called for us to "bomb" the pirates, but such saber-rattling will only kill innocent women and children. In other words, "American Machismo" worked to rescue the captain, but it will not work for the resolution of this problem. What will work is increasing aide to Somalia and helping them establish a central government but from a distance, not via invasion. Somalia has been without a true central government since 1991, and that country's civil war. (And the United States doesn't need another incursion into that country, or for that matter another situation where American solidiers are killed, which were the events captured in a movie called Black Hawk Down.) We can't afford to take on the task now. But we can work with the United Nations and other countries impacted by piracy to improve the Somali economy. Somalia is poor. According to the CIA, its' Gross Domestic Product is just over $2 billion, and the average life expectancy is just 47 years old. That's right: 47 years old. So when the average Somalian hears that a pirate's making as much as a share of $22 million for a heist, that's attractive. Indeed, the BBC reports that Somalian pirates are "living the high life" becoming very wealthy even by American standards in a country that's very poor by the World's standards. So much so is the economy a problem and piracy attractive that recruiting participants has become easier over the years. The monetary spigot has to be shut off in two ways: economic and military, but we can't afford to constantly patrol several hundred thousand square miles of ocean to watch every action a band of pirates might take. Aid to Somalia must be increased -- dramatically. But for now, I don't expect these attacks to stop, indeed, the lure of money and the culture that's developed around it is too intense to be curbed by America's success at recovering its people, even if the pirate hostage-takers were killed. They will try again, perhaps with some other country's vessel, but they will strike again. Distributed by Tubemogul.

*******www.zennie62**** - Ok. Maybe I'm being a grump but who the heck is Zac Efron? All of a sudden I'm told some guy named "Zac Efron" is a star, an idol, and - like I care because I'm straight and male - a hunk. So what! Why him? Why not someone Black? I'm concerned that we as a society don't think critically about what institutions push at us to consume -- Efron's a great example. I fail to see why he's star and I am derisive of the system that tells me he is. Zac's not the product of a vote on American Idol and if he were on it, he would not win. I learned that Efron's voice was digitally blended with that of Disney singer Andrew Seeley for the album for "High School Musical" in 2007. So if he needed that kind of help, there's no way he'd survive "Idol" at all. I'm surprised Simon Cowell actually offered him a record deal, and Cowell can thank God and Efron, for Efron's rejection of the offer. The failure of his record would have made Cowell look real bad. The fact is Zac Efron's the product of a Disney PR machine that's produced Britany Spears, Christina Aquilera, Miley Sirus, Vanessa Hudgens, and other famous singers, and all either white or "of color" but light-skinned. The only exception is "Raven", the star of "That's so Raven." If you're saying "Why the focus on race?" my counter is because Disney's focused on race, and in fact a commitment to diversity, while more desirable, is still an emphasis of race - you can't escape that fact. But I'm tired of having a certain kind of look pushed at me and in the collective face of the industrialized World without a vote. That's what makes Susan Boyle's story so cool! The World voted for her 30 million times if you consider the video views as votes. And if you think of the rise of Hip-Hop and Rap stars, that could not have happened without a vote by dollar: white guys and white girls buying their albums (and without Disney's influence.) That dynamic has produced many a Black sex symbol and yes to white women. LL Cool J is a great example and he's performed for over 22 years! In fact, I contend that Hip-Hop and Rap caused an integration of America in such a way that a whole generation was essentially mentally prepared to vote for Barack Obama for President. What's that you say? Disney's promoting White talent because they're seen as wholesome? Yeah. Ok. Then explain the whole Vanessa Huggens sex tage episode? Don't tell me the Disney PR machine wasn't involved in that; I won't believe it. And besides, Zac Efron's got a crush on Tyra Banks and she's Black. just don't tell Disney! Distributed by Tubemogul.

Famed lawyer Gloria Allred came to the Night Of 100 Stars Oscar Party with a sign in the shape of an Octagon that read "Charlie Sheen Is Disgusting." She then used the press platform to go on a planned rant about Charlie Sheen, but I couldn't resist asking her about Tiger Woods. As you may know, she represented several women who were mistresses of Woods, including Rachel Uchitel. So, she went off on Woods first, before really going off about Sheen. Distributed by Tubemogul.

This is just my prediction but Donald Trump will let Carrie Prejean keep her Miss California crown, upsetting Perez Hilton and much of Hollywood in the process. They will yell, kick and scream but for Trump it's about regaining control of the message: it's my pageant not yours. And he will say this to the representatives of Miss California, the very ones who on Monday held a press conference that was more activist bickering rant than an event, but I suppose that's an event too.

*******www.zennie62**** -- Adrienne Bailon is a Disney Cheetah Girl who claimed nude photos of her were stolen, then put on the Internet. Well, it's all a hoax set up by her friend who's a Hollywood publicist.

*******www.zennie62**** - I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Phelps last fall at the Bank of The West Classic tennis event. I said then that he was "a cool guy" or words to that effect. The matter of his "bong" event is a study in American Hypocrisy.

I had to take some time to check emails and write this blog after attending the NFL Play 60 Program in Central Park, which was a great time. I was able to get a number of interviews with several of the college football players bound for the NFL who've been invited to New York for the Draft: Georgia Quarterback Matt Stafford, Kansas State Quarterback Josh Freeman, Texas Tech Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree, Ole Miss Offensive Tackle Michael Oher (who came from homelessness to the NFL) and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. You will see each of them in video uploads today and Saturday. Distributed by Tubemogul.
