Dan White's ... representation ... goes like this: "Councilman Ed Porter, who researched and proposed the rules, said he became convinced the council had to take action after the 'uproar' and the 'avalanche of e-mails' after a stabbing near Borders in the spring." Fhar Miess of The Alarm fills us in on the REAL story and exposes the Sentinel's dishonesty.

Robert Norse Arrest During City Council Meeting

Sgt. Loren Baker approached Norse and asked him to leave the council chambers. Norse insisted he had a right to stay and was placed in handcuffs although the meeting was still in recess. He was initially informed he was being charged with tresspass. Then he was held by Officer Brandt in a police car for several minutes repeatedly demanding to know what he was being arrested for. Brandt finally received word on his radio from Sgt. Baker that Norse was being charged for disrupting a meeting. The misdemeanor is punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1000 fine. Norse commented on the reason for the arrest. "To think you can punish someone for a silent gesture of disapproval -- that is fascism. You are punishing people based on the content of their expression. I didn't disrupt the meeting. Krohn disrupted his own meeting."

12 MONKEYS at Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In (5/27)

2_guerilla-drive-in-logo.gifTerry Gilliam directs 12 Monkeys, a densely plotted, visually dynamic post-apocalyptic thriller. It is a movie that is as bleak as it is mind-bending, a dystopian nightmare that seems uncomfortably plausible. Bruce Willis is a brutalized, misunderstood time-traveler sent to the present from 2035 where the scattered remains of humanity live deep underground. An intoxicating blend of existential science fiction and unrequited romance. Wild and beautiful and deeply disturbing all at once.
