Clooney Arrested and Released


, Blogger: Orry's Orations
Maybe Martin Sheen will send George Clooney a Way to Go message. Sheen has a number of arrests on his record as he is quite the activist in areas that concern him, but today was Clooney's first arrest in a political bipartisan statement. His dad, Nick, was even arrested with him. They wanted to bring attention to the Sudan situation. Mission accomplished. More here.


I'm not a fan of celebrity misdemeanors for a cause. It looks too much like grandstanding. I also find it hard to believe there's any benefit to the cause in question. Is Sudan any better off for Clooney's new arrest record? I doubt it.
