Darryl Fears Will Become New Celebrity Environment Reporter

By Holly Wood & Environment Man

Darryl Fears
 We predict that Darryl Fears, who has just been designated as an environmental reporter for The Washington Post, will become the nation's first 'celebrity environmental reporter.'  Why do we say this: well because he is a veteran reporter who knows how to cut through the clutter to get to the meat of comtemporary issues.  In short, Darryl has an 'eye' for the important story that others seem to miss.  So once he mixes his Inside the Beltway savy with Hollywood Walk of Fame scrutiny, he will be a force to be reckoned with. We can see the headline now: "Hollywood Fears Darryl The Potomac Paparazzo."

We also hope that he will contrast the lifestyles of the rich and famous with their calls for conservation.  We don't mind celebrities using their celebrity to promote green causes, but please point out the other 5 houses and 10 cars when standing next to a Prius and showing off their energy efficient home.  The rest of us want what they have too.  Think Al Gore.  He's worth about $100 million now and we want to be just like him.  Let's call it the Kennedy approach to addressing poverty: from a gated community on the waterfront.  Renewable energy and energy efficiency are righteous goals, but so is the American dream.  Can you have it all: many do.  And we want ours too.
