#1 I gather there is a new federal law that the Secret Service can designate areas prohibited for free speech, petition or protest.

#2 Any word on whether Clooney was savagely beaten while resisting arrest? Or just for the heck of it?

#3 It's a celebrity arrest, the same as used to be done outside the South African embassy a generation ago. I bet it was all pre-arranged, just as those were...

#6 Clooney annoys me and seems less brain dead than a lot of his ilk. It's not the average lefty that would pick up a cause like S. Sudan. And there's really no doubt that Sudan's leadership should be arrested and tried for the massacres there.

#7 He's a major league asshole, but on this rare occasion, I agree with him in principle.

#8 For those who remember that far back, George Clooney is Rosemary Clooney's nephew. She lives just across the Ohio River in Kentucky. His father is a local news anchor in Cincinnati. Good people, from what I've heard.

#10 He should be arrested anyway for some of the clunkers he's made.

#12 Yes, I have very close friends that lived in the town where his parents live and they are said to be very kind and down to earth, but, no doubt, are bleeding hearts.
