Great Regulars: They were among a crowd in front

of the Sudanese Embassy, protesting the government and alleged war crimes of President Omar al-Bashir. They were arrested and escorted to jail.

[Rabbi Steve] Gutow and [John] Prendergast had company behind bars.

George Clooney, for one.

And George Clooney's father.

And Martin Luther King III.

And Benjamin Jealous, head of the NAACP.

A whole cell-full of prominent people, actually. And from the sound of it, they had a merry old time.
