Wow thanks Kelly. She told me her parents who had no idea she was doing that recognized her in the paper
the next morning.
She says this was in New York City. Then, a week or so later she was again
arrested in Washington DC at the Levitation of the Pentagon, one of the great protest events against

partially because of that and maybe also becuse i looked so young, the
judge begged me to plead guilty as he did not want to send me to this
awful women's prison (Rikers I think) so i did and he let me off. I
didn't go to prison till D.C.
