When last we heard from our convention reporter Shawn Macomber, he was about to be handcuffed and hauled off to the hoosegow along with a great many demonstrators (and some other hapless reporters) whom New York police had decided to arrest yesterday during mid-afternoon. Those arresting him refused to honor his official convention press credentials. (Hope this will be of interest to more than just the ACLU.) Shawn informed me that if I didn’t hear from him within a few hours, it would probably be Wednesday morning at the earliest that he’d be able to file copy for today. We’ll keep you posted.

UPDATE (Sept. 1, 2004; 10:04 AM)

Shawn Macomber was released this morning, after a sleepless night in a New York jail among detained demonstrators who kept invoking Franz Kafka. As soon as his sore wrists recover — three hours in handcuffs can do that to you — he’ll be filing.
