Michel Jalbert, the francophone jailed for doing what the INS said was
perfectly legal in a 1991 letter, was released on bail yesterday, as I
reported, but it turns out that before he could leave Bangor, he was
arrested again by INS officials. On what grounds? For being in the
country illegally, even though it's for that charge (amongst others)
that he is to be tried for in January, and for which trial he was
granted bail. This case is getting stranger and stranger all the time.
He doesn't get the bail money back, either, so he's in jail, and out the
bail money. There's something that smacks of double jeopardy -- even
"triple" jeopardy here.

Never mind an obscure logger from a town no one's ever heard of before
(even in Quebec) -- just think of what this could mean if your new
Homeland Security ministry acts this way towards US citizens. Yeah,
okay, I'm scare-mongering, but so be it.
