When Jessica Simpson landed at New York’s JFK airport on Friday night, seven National Guardsmen swarmed around the smiling star.

The two mammoth men asked us whether a lonely, vacant Saturn parked outside the terminal was ours. When we told them we knew nothing about the car, they shrugged and wandered away.
