At about 6PM, 75 people marched down the road with hundreds of letters to Laura Bush, asking her to convince George to meet with Cindy.

Medea Benjiman and a military mom handed over the leters to Bill Burke from the Office of the Secretary of the President.

The Sheriff stopped the marchers at a fork in the road. About 1.7 miles from the Presidents Ranch.

I spoke with Nadia McCaffrey, whose son was killed Iraq. She told me that there will always be a mother of a fallen soldier here if George comes out while Cindy is away.

Surely Laura is too busy sewing patches onto George's faux military flying jacket?

So many aircraft carriers, so little time...

Yeah, right. Might as well throw the letters directly into the garbage bin. Laura Bush is as heartless and stupid as her husband.Do you really think she cares?

Remember this statement by his mother, Barbara Bush, on Good Morning America in March 2003:

Why should we hear about body bags, and deaths, and how many, what day it’s gonna happen, and how many this or what do you suppose? Oh, I mean, it’s not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?
(from This is a very sick family. I doubt Laura has any influence IF she isn't sick as well by now.
