    I guess it is now against the law — in what used to be the United
    States of America — to even approach Dick Cheney, unless you are
    handing him a campaign donation.

    *Man arrested for criticizing Cheney to his face*

    This deserves more attention. A man walking with his young son goes
    up to the Vice President at a public appearance and tells him his Iraq
    policy is “reprehensible.” He’s later arrested for “assaulting” VP
    Cheney. Now he’s suing. The guy’s name is Steve Howard.

    Here’s a snippet from the Rocky Mountain News …

    Attorney David Lane said that on June 16, Steve Howards was
    walking his 7-year-old son to a piano practice, when he saw
    Cheney surrounded by a group of people in an outdoor mall
    area, shaking hands and posing for pictures with several

    According to the lawsuit filed at U.S. District Court in
    Denver, Howards and his son walked to about two-to-three feet
    from where Cheney was standing, and said to the vice
    president, “I think your policies in Iraq are reprehensible,”
    or words to that effect, then walked on.

    Ten minutes later, according to Howards’ lawsuit, he and his
    son were walking back through the same area, when they were
    approached by Secret Service agent Virgil D. “Gus” Reichle
    Jr., who asked Howards if he had “assaulted” the vice
    president. Howards denied doing so, but was nonetheless placed
    in handcuffs and taken to the Eagle County Jail.
