I read with humor Kimo Rosen’s opinion article, “What’s news anymore?”
...And recent blog;"NBA player comes out, who cares?"
Kimo asks as to why an NBA player, making public he is gay, hits the front cover of Sports Illustrated. Recently, there was abounding news of supermodel Heidi Klum on holiday in O’ahu.

Spotlighted was, “The real Baywatch-2 Haute Chicks,” and “Add ‘lifeguard’ to the 39-year-old’s long list of jobs, which include supermodel ...”
Stories and photos spoke to a “dramatic” Hawai‘i beach rescue by bikini clad Heidi Klum — Klum and her bodyguard boyfriend rescuing Klum’s two nannies and family member from what was described as a treacherous riptide. Being a free diver, and having rescued a handful of folks on holiday enjoying the ocean, the story caught my attention.
In photos, the two nannies are being helped from the sandy edges of the water. In another, in this “dramatic rescue,” Heidi Klum is holding a young family member’s hand with her left hand, and holding the “arm” of her sunglasses with her right hand ... both survived the rescue.
Fame, fortune, and Brazilian bikinis. In the more than 15 ocean rescues I have witnessed or been a part of, we doing the fetching weren't clad in bikinis, but usually board shorts. If lucky, we accessorized with flotation devices, not sunglasses.
These rescues never hit the newspaper or TV. Maybe if my friends and I wear a Brazilian bikini and pair of Gucci sunglasses — poised for the next ocean rescue, we will make our way to the cover of Sports Illustrated.
