A certain vegetarian protester is getting a lot of press for standing up to the Bush administration in a stark free-speech dispute. Brett Bursey was arrested for "trespassing" at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport in October during Bush's visit because he was protesting the president's warmongering, while pro-GOP demonstrators in the same space were not "trespassing." The original charge was dropped and replaced with a more convoluted one, resulting in a legal technicality that's just delayed Bursey's trial. This will be one to watch.
