I like this commentary about the TEA protests. I agree with Madigan, if people are serious they'll risk jail for their principles. Dr. King did, the Berrigans did, and the folks who chain themselves to various sites, climb up trees and so forth certainly do. That's real sacrifice because going to jail is no picnic for anyone, especially if you are part of a mass protest. I don't have to agree with the protestors' agenda, but it is hard to take people seriously if they aren't willing to do more than show up for the cameras and then go home.
