Fargo for Cindy

Just a heads up on what we've got going here in Fargo, ND. I met with the head of Red River Anti-War Coalition and the President of Workers International and we're going to rally on the bridge which crosses into Moorhead, MN--this will make it a two state rally :-)--at noon on Sunday 21 Aug. 2005. We have already arranged for a radio interview and some press to put the word out (in addition to the local mailing lists).

We were thinking that in addition to all of the various slogans which people may be putting on their signs, maybe we should have at least one clear and simple saying (across the country) that represents our solidarity with Cindy Sheehan. Our thought was: "I'm with you, Cindy". This is where we're at up to this point. It would be great to be able to announce in our broadcast that this is going to happen across the nation. Another thought is that the more we can get labor behind this the better (this sort of solidarity would surely turn some heads in Washington). Maybe get some truckers to put signs on their grills or something? Just a thought...keep me posted on your progress.

Aug. 22, 2005 issue - The grieving room was arranged like a doctor's office. The families and loved ones of 33 soldiers killed in Iraq or Afghanistan were summoned to a large waiting area at Fort Bragg, N.C. For three hours, they were rotated through five private rooms, where they met with President George W. Bush, accompanied by two Secret Service men and a photographer. Because the walls were thin, the families awaiting their turn could hear the crying inside.

President Bush was wearing "a huge smile," but his eyes were red and he looked drained by the time he got to the last widow, Crystal Owen, a third-grade schoolteacher who had lost her husband in Iraq. "Tell me about Mike," he said immediately. "I don't want my husband's death to be in vain," she told him. The president apologized repeatedly for her husband's death. When Owen began to cry, Bush grabbed her hands. "Don't worry, don't worry," he said, though his choking voice suggested that he had worries of his own. The president and the widow hugged. "It felt like he could have been my dad," Owen recalled to NEWSWEEK. "It was like we were old friends. It almost makes me sad. In a way, I wish he weren't the president, just so I could talk to him all the time."

Quite the contrast to the image Sheehan is trying to put forth.

Sheehan is a liar. A publicity-seeking liar who is at home in front of fawning hangers-on and others who admire her "professional victim" status
