The article presents information on anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, who was wearing a T-shirt with a message at the State of the Union address by U.S. President George W. Bush. On her T-shirt, it was written "2,245 Dead. How Many More?," which referred to the number of U.S. soldiers killed in the Iraq war, including Sheehan's son. Sheehan was taken out of the gallery, and was arrested by the Capitol Hill police on charges of unlawful conduct. Later, the police dropped the charges and apologized. However, according to MSNBC TV, Sheehan should have apologized to the Democratic Party.
