It was apparently determined that Cindy Sheehan was arrested for offending tradition. Ms. Sheehan and the wife of a Republican Representative were not dressed dignified enough for a seat in the gallery at the Capitol. No dress code guidelines were provided to SOTU attendees, it is assumed no one would wear attire with writing about the Iraq war. Our country's leaders surely do not need to be reminded of the number of U.S. deaths (2,245) resulting from the Iraq war or to be reminded to support the troops.

Although, they apparently do need constant reminder of the devastation in our own country, down New Orleans way. This was/is one of our country's worst disasters, directly affecting over half a million US citizens and indirectly affecting much of the country, and it warrants a brief mention near the very end of the SOTU. So sad.
