Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Judge: "It's About Time."

Ah, so.........where you gonna run to?

Judge says "It's about time," to Rove Arresters
QUOTE The four Iowans arrested last Friday for attempting to make a citizen's arrest of Karl entered pleas of "not guilty" in
court on Wednesday, July 30,.2008. Retired Methodist minister, Chet Guinn, 80, and
Des Moines Catholic Workers, Ed Bloomer, 61, Mona Shaw 57, and Kirk Brown, 25,
were arrested at a Des Moines country club where Rove was appearing at a
Republican Fundraiser.

Shaw was the first called before Polk County Fifth Judicial District Associate Judge
William Price. After entering her plea, the judge asked Shaw, "Ma'am, what were you
doing at the Wakonda Country Club?"

"I was attempting to make a citizen's arrest of Karl Rove, your honor," Shaw

"Well," the judge looked up and said, "it's about time."

Then the judge called the other three defendants to the bench and accepted their
pleas simultaneously. A jury trial for has been set for August 20, 2008.
Previous reports that the arrest was "pre-arranged" by either the defendants or the
Des Moines Police are inaccurate. UNQUOTE
