Sean Penn & El Chapo

This is a really amazing story. Sean Penn somehow got to see El Chapo while the drug kingpin was on the lam from the law, and wrote an article for Rolling Stone magazine about it.

They posted it last night, the day after El Chapo was captured. It's a bit of a rambling mess of an article because Penn had to write it all from memory--no recording devices or pen & paper were allowed. But it's still fascinating.

And it turns out, it led to El Chapo's capture.

Penn has come a long way from his Spicoli days.
