I guess this info about the Bush arrest record has been all over the news, but
I just learned about it. I've also heard that Cheney has been arrested twice,
but I haven't seen that confirmed. Is that true or a rumor? And what's with
At any rate, I thought this was worth posting to this list, given the many
postings about the elections that have been sent to EM over the past few days.
