The protests downtown start their third week tomorrow, and though there's a lot more to say about them, I need to mark something that is particularly startling. Several hundred protesters have been sleeping in the Capitol for most of the last two weeks. They have been peaceful and have cleaned up after themselves. The goodwill between police and protesters has been remarkable.

But what is more remarkable is this: The executive branch has asked the police to clear the building of protesters, twice. And today many of these protesters affirmed that they were willing to get arrested, peaceably, to make a point. And the police said no. The sleepover goes on.
