No talking in the Peanut Gallery!

My second grade teacher, Mrs. Gilchrist, always used to say that to our class. I never talked, but I think such an admonition applies here.

NBC11: Cindy Sheehan Plans To Be In Audience At Bush Address---

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Cindy Sheehan said she will be part of the live audience during the president's State of the Union speech to congress Tuesday.

Bay Area Congresswoman Lynn Woosley gave anti-war activist a gallery pass late Tuesday, just hours before the planned State of the Union speech. Sheehan was in Washington to protest the president during his national address, but then came word she was invited to see the speech live.

A spokesman for Sheehan says she decided to accept the invitation two hours prior to the speech. The spokesman also said that Sheehan will be respectful and listen to the address because she is a guest of a member of congress.
