• Sean Penn venturing into Lost Society steakhouse on U Street in the wee hours of Sunday morning. Sharp suit and tie, unfamiliar but attractive woman at his side. The frequent Capitol Hill celebvocacy visitor had a classic exchange on the sidewalk: Passerby Tommy McFly, the 94.7 FM personality, snapped a photo of the star, who protested, “this is not a [expletive] zoo,” and something about how he’d only shake McFly’s hand if he were “in the [expletive] hospital,” the implication being when Penn put him there (as McFly promptly blogged and tweeted). When will people learn? Don’t taunt lions, don’t keep alligators as pets, and don’t try to take Sean Penn’s photo!
