<div class="quote-block"><b>What Sent Hannah up a Tree<br><br>
The actress, arrested at a protest this week after 23 days on the urban farm, is no newcomer to activism or environmentalism.</b><br><br><br><br>
By Robert W. Welkos<br><br>
Times Staff Writer<br><br><br><br>
She became a vegan at the age of 11 after she befriended a little calf being hauled by a truck that was parked near a road. The calf kissed her face for about an hour. When the truck driver appeared, she asked him what the calf's name was. "Veal, tomorrow morning at 7," he shot back. At 12, she got into a big argument with her father because she didn't want her taxes ever going to support war. He told her that if she didn't pay taxes she'd go to jail.<br><br><br><br>
The education of Daryl Hannah, activist, was underway.<br><br><br><br>
As she perched in a walnut tree this week waiting for sheriff's deputies to arrest her and other protesters at an urban farm in South Los Angeles, it may have seemed that Hannah, now 45, was just another actress parachuting in to generate publicity for another cause. And in fact, publicity is part of what she's after, Hannah agreed. But unlike some activists in Hollywood, she pointed out, she really tries to live what she preaches.</div>

That's cool.<br><br><br><br>
Too bad she was *very* rude to my then 11 year old daughter when she approached her at the 'Natural Foods and Products Expo' (where Daryl Hannah was approaching people and asking them questions and filming it). That kind of face-to-face interaction tells me more about her character than a media article. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/undecided.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":-/">

Really? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/surprised.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":surprised"> What exactly did she do or say that was rude? (just curious)

I had no idea she was so damn cool.<br><br><br><br>
But rude, apparently. That's too bad. Maybe she was just having a bad day... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:">

It's sad when famous people refuse to accept that they no longer relevant.</div>

A sitting president isn't relevant? You really were thinking that, or is that some passive-aggressive attempt at responding to my disparaging remark about a Hollywood has-been?

Why are you always bringing up that passive-aggressive stuff? It's just a joke Amy was making.
