    A journalist was among those arrested for taking pictures in the Wisconsin General Assembly.


    Really makes you wonder why the politicians in Wisconsin are so afraid of people finding out what they're doing. Maybe they are afraid people will use the guns they are allowed to bring into the Statehouse?

    It's awkward to slurp Koch when you're trying to handle a camera as well, so obviously, the cameras have to go . . .

    If people can't keep exercising their first amendment rights, they may start exercising their second amendment rights!

    So let me see if I have this straight:

    Guns = Good, Cameras = Bad?

    How the fuck do these guys and gals ever get elected?

    I've taken pictures in the House chamber of my state's General Assembly, but I made media arrangements ahead of time. Even with a credential, they ushered me out of the balcony gallery and told me I couldn't take pictures from up there.
