Good news today: Lucy Lawless, of Xena: Warrior Princess and Spartacus fame, has been arrested as her plot to deny the world the oil it deserves was foiled by New Zealand police. Lawless and six other Greenpeace protestors climbed atop the Noble Discoverer, a drilling ship serving Shell Oil.
She had been atop the rig for 77 hours, but was arrested as police came to the aid of the ship to take away the trespassers.
Yes, yes. I’m sure that Lawless’ plight of spending a weekend occupying a tanker ship in new Zealand is very similar to the people in Guantanamo Bay, some of whom have been unjustly held and tortured. I don’t know why Xena can’t just accept the fact that without that awesome oil she’s shanghaiing, we’d all have to ride the bus like poor people.
I think the survivors would envy the dead.
