My latest crush on a TV character

Okay, so over the last week I’ve been watching that B-grade Marine action TV series, Pensacola: Wings of Gold. I think the actor who plays First Lieutenant Robert "Chaser" Griffin, Rod Rowland, is extremely cute.

Anyway, I was surfing the web for sites about him, and found quite a delicious bit of info: his favourite writer is Hunter S. Thompson. Now that’s some serious awesomeness! [Note, from this site: "His favorite author is "Hunter S. Thompson"????? I've never heard of this person, so I'm not sure I caught the name correctly."]

Not only is Rod super dreamy, he is also intelligent and, from all accounts, quite an actor, too. It’s just disappointing that he was only in season one of Pensacola.

Some cool Rod Rowland sites:

And speaking of the late Mr Thompson...

"Why are we seeing George Bush on TV every two hours for nine or ten days at a time, like some kind of mutated Mr. Rogers clone? Something is dangerously wrong in any country where a monumentally-failed backwoods politician can scare our national TV networks so totally that they will give him anything he wants."

"Who are these Swine? These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush? ..... They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and viscious in the American character.... I piss down the throats of these Nazis. And I am too old to worry about whether they like it or not. Fuck Them."
