Sean Penn at DU

Sean Penn spoke at the Ralph Nader Rally at DU last Tuesday. Fortunately, Juliette Mondot was there to record it for DenverDirect. Penn has a thoughtful and interesting premise. He believes that as the US constitution is degraded by government action, fundamentalist domestic violence will rise in opposition. Instead, he proposes, we must act first by electing a president who will uphold the constitution, and that would be Ralph Nader. Synchronistically, I happened to have a Netflix DVD of Into the Wild, screenplay written and directed by Penn, waiting to be viewed last night. A very good movie which I highly recommend (downer alert).
