From @connect in my Twitter feed today:
I count 39 in this photo, including half bodies at far left. IMHO, 39 angry activists don’t speak for the country. Hansen, seen standing at far left in the grey fedora, keeps coming back for more, time and again. I wonder if there is some sort of “Three strikes” law for people like him? I’m reminded of a line in the movie, The Shawshank Redemption:
Maybe you should try a new career.
I said, since you don’t have much success as a thief, you should try a new career.
Ryan Maue has some interesting takes on the photo op:
UPDATE: (h/t to Latitude and NJ_Snow_Fan) James E Hansen was arrested again today according to Washington Post story.http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/activists-arrested-at-white-house-protesting-keystone-pipeline/2013/02/13/8f0f1066-75fa-11e2-aa12-e6cf1d31106b_story.html
UPDATE2: Ryan Maue notes via FB messaging: mote first line of second page of WashPo article on Keystone XL:
“The protest was well orchestrated and had an exclusive air about it, bringing together the elite of the environmental movement.”
…this was a “by-invitation only” protest with 38-45 people. WaPo nails it.
