George (and his dad) are making a loud noise and shining a bright light on the urgent Sudanese issues - more power to them!

Good man, George. How very, very welcome to see someone using their high profile to help others. And what a refreshing change from the norm these days.

Martin Sheen is going to be sooooooooooooooo jealous. Getting arrested is supposed to be his job.

Good for George! People born on May 6th are stubborn and will go to the wall for what they believe in. I know. Good for George's dad too.

For what ever reason, he and his father made it a personal cause, it's certainly to their credit.

Stand up for what you believe! We must do this in spite of the attack on our civil rights. No.....BECAUSE of the attacks on our civil rights!

Mr. Clooney has been trying to draw attention to the atrocities in the Sudan for a few years now. He has done more than any other American (along with his father) to try to help the people in Darfur. A true star!!

Thank-you George Clooney and all the others who got arrested. A lot of high profile people reportedly were arrested. Their efforts resulted in tons of media attention. I hope it helps.

I have always been a fan of George Clooney: He's a great actor and obviously a man of substance. I like him even more now.

George and his father where not doing anything wrong. They are trying to help these people. It's very sad when you are arrested for trying to do good. What is this world coming to? Keep up the good work!!!!
