Weird, petty people

Maybe it's what my training forces me to focus on all the time. Maybe I'm just loosing patience with others. Whatever the reason, I find this story ridiculous. Here, we have some random town in Vermont voting on arresting President Bush on various charges:
Brattleboro residents will vote at town meeting on whether President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney should be indicted and arrested for war crimes, perjury or obstruction of justice if they ever step foot in Vermont.

The Brattleboro Select Board voted 3-2 Friday to put the controversial item on the Town Meeting Day warning.

According to Town Clerk Annette Cappy, organizers of the Bush-Cheney issue gathered enough signatures, and it was up to the Select Board whether Brattleboro voters would consider the issue in March.

The individual responsible later compares President Bush to Hitler. I'm guessing history isn't his strong point. I'm guessing the board of this town just don't have anything useful to vote on, like taking care of town projects.
