Nope. the century/millennium ended at 2000-12-31 23:59:59

That's because there was no year 0, because when AD/BC dating was invented Europe handed yet adopted Arabic numbers (AD/BC was invented sometime in the 3rd or 4th century).

So Dec XXXI, I BC was followed by Jan I, AD I. (and yes, the AD goes *before* the year because it is short for anno Domini which is "the year of Our Lord")

What she did *was* illegal. So like any other act of civil disobedience, she *does* have to do the time for the crime.

Remember, that's one of the main things that differentiates civil disobedience from scofflaws.Being mistreated after you are convicted is, alas, par for the course. But in the long run, it helps show that the law was bad.
