Yesterday an Alaskan Republican politician made a name for himself outside of Alaska by renaming a recently passed anti-environmentalist bill from the original bill name of HB92 to the more memorable name of "Lucy Lawless Bill" thus ensuring the world's media paid attention. Lucy and her fellow Greenpeace protesters are due to go to court on 7 February in New Plymouth for sentencing for their 24-27 February 2012 occupation of the Shell Drill Ship Noble Discoverer.
