Sad Times :(

A Flash Mob gathering in Washington DC to honor Thomas Jefferson ends in arrest. Ars Technica has a good summary of what happened.
The group working on getting the word out about what happened has a site here.
Here are 3 YouTube Videos chronicling the event:

Act 1:


Act 2:


Act 3:


The irony of infringing on the freedom of others at the memorial of a man who valued exactly that is priceless. People should be aware that this sort of thing is happening, and America is becoming more apathetic about it.
Sad Times :(
