    This line from story about Roger Moore getting his star on Hollywood Boulevard:

    Pierce Brosnan is the only other actor who played Bond on the big screen to receive a star on the Walk of Fame.

    Sean Connery doesn't have a star on the Walk of Fame?

    This cannot be true, right?

    That does seem strange. Guess George Lazenby doesn't either.

    If Timothy Dalton doesn't have a star, I'm suing!

    (Don't you have to pay for those things or something? Connery probably throws the letter away every year).

    You do have to pay, which is how hacks like Roseanne have stars.

    Holy shit. I did not know that.

    Connery's star-deserving greatness leaps yet again.

    I guess Connery didn't need to shell out 25K to feed his ego with a bogus star on the bogus Walk of Fame.

    The Walk of Fame is maintained by the self-financing Hollywood Historic Trust. In order for a person to get a star on the Walk of Fame, he or she must agree to attend a presentation ceremony within five years of selection, and a $25,000 fee must be paid to the Trust for costs such as security at the star ceremony;

    It's almost like the writer wanted to create a discussion with that line.

    Wait a second.
    You wanted to declare that "hacks" sometimes get Hollywood stars, and you skipped right over Jim Gray to call out Roseanne?

    I love how celebrities talk about what an honor it is to be on the Walk of Fame. Give me a fucking break. You're on it because some sap forked out $25,000.

    So, for $25,000, could we get "SportsJournalists.com" a star on the Walk?

    Some stars aren't willing to show up for one. I know Connery is on that list. I think Eastwood might be as well...
