Save the electric cars!

…. and the trees, and the whales, and guilty men from the death penalty!

Well, ok. In this instance, it was just the electric cars that were in need of ‘saving’:

Former “Baywatch” actress Alexandra Paul and another woman were arrested at a vigil meant to save General Motors’ EV1 electric cars.

On Monday, Paul and Colette Divine were in a car that blocked the path of trucks hauling the cars to Arizona to be destroyed, police said. Both women were booked on suspicion of failing to obey an officer, police Lt. William Berry said. They were released on their own recognizance and were scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.

A call to Paul, who played Stephanie Holden on the TV series, wasn’t immediately returned Monday night.

Paul and Divine were among dozens of electric car supporters holding an around-the-clock vigil outside a General Motors Corp. training center in Burbank, where more than 70 EV1s had been stored en route to a recycling plant near Mesa, Ariz.

“The one thing they (Paul and Divine) asked to relay to media was that it was a very peaceful act and they are very committed to saving these cars,” said organizer Chelsea Sexton, a former GM employee responsible for promoting the EV1.

Isn’t that just wonderful?! I hope the next rally where members of the Hollywood elite participate should be a “save the children” rally, to educate women on the pros and cons of abortion and hopefully convince them that having the baby is the best option. Think we’ll see that in our lifetimes? Nah.
