Out in the flood of convention delegates on the Astrodome floor, Ky Ngo was doing his best to stand out amid a throng of Texas bubbas in 10-gallon hats and Republican matrons. Outfitted in a traditional silk Vietnamese robe and headdress, the Orange County resident rose to his feet often and long, holding aloft a sign: "Free Democracy, Human Rights For Vietnam." It's a message the 39-year-old immigrant very much wants the White House to see.

It was an about-face that outraged a generation displaced by war. Nguyen Cao Ky, the former South Vietnam leader known for ruthlessly defending democracy, was suddenly, at 73, rubbing shoulders with communist officials - something that seemed unthinkable to those who had fled the country during the painful days after the Vietnam War. Vietnamese Americans who had rallied around him felt betrayed, and Ky's once-revered stature in the small...

An Orange County jury has decided against three anti-communist protesters who have staged a months-long picket outside a Vietnamese-language daily newspaper. The jury ruled Tuesday that protesters Trong Doan, Ky Ngo and Cung Tran are liable for trespassing and causing a nuisance. The civil trial now moves to the penalty phase in Orange County Superior Court. The protesters have been demonstrating outside the Nguoi Viet Daily News since January 2008, when the paper ran a photo of a foot spa painted in the colors of the South Vietnamese flag.

One of President Bush's key Orange County-based Vietnamese-American supporters said Thursday that he would resign from the President's reelection campaign if Bush proceeds with plans to normalize U.S. relations with Vietnam before Inauguration Day. "It would be wrong for us to recognize a country that still oppresses the Vietnamese people," said Ky Ngo, a co-chairman of the Bush/Quayle campaign in Orange County. "I oppose that and I think the majority of Vietnamese (Americans) oppose it."

One voice has been conspicuously absent from the daily anti-communist protests outside a Westminster video store: the politician. Protesters over the weekend demanded to know why Westminster City Councilman Tony Lam, who won reelection in November, was absent from the ongoing demonstration that began 13 days ago. "What is he doing? Where is he?" asked Ky Ngo, a protest leader. "We want him here to listen to what we have to say."

Protesters must stay off Westminster Councilman Tony Lam's restaurant property and parking lot, an Orange County Superior Court judge ruled Monday, but they can continue to picket on the public sidewalk in front. Dozens of protesters have picketed at Lam's Garden Grove restaurant since March 12 demanding his recall because he did not appear at demonstrations against a Little Saigon merchant who displayed a Communist flag and Ho Chi Minh picture.
