Nothing could better describe what happened throughout that confused and overwhelmed system over the last week. Unusual Occurrences. Judges, jailers, prosecutors and defenders joining to plan round-the-clock weekend arraignment courts.

Robert Rodriguez has had a rather eclectic film career. Though the Austin, Texas-based filmmaker has directed such violent, R-rated fare as "El Mariachi," "Desperado" and the recent gore-fest "Sin City," the father of four sons has also enjoyed success with his "Spy Kids" adventures. He even successfully reintroduced the old '50s movie experiment of 3-D in his last "Spy Kids" vehicle.

Attendance was modest. This despite Peck's little blue flyers announcing that he has "consistently cogitated on ways and means to have in existence Peace and Plenty for all." Peck is not discouraged.
