Montclair Responds To Cindy Sheehan

According to Baristanet, our hometown blog, Moveon.org is sponsering a candlelight vigil for Cindy Sheehan, the mother who has taken her grief and protests against the war that killed her son to the front of the President's ranch in Crawford, Texas.

The idea of a vigil for one person who has suffered the same grief that thousands of others have felt during this war is slightly absurd. However, what is more ludicrous is the response from the conservative media (FOX, WSJ), which has branded Sheehan as a phony camera seeker with little sincerity for her cause.

Of course she's seeking publicity, it's the most effective way to advance her dream of ending the war. You may believe that the war is justified, or even going well, but it's tough to question the sincerity of a woman who has lost a son and is trying to save more mothers from experiencing the same tragedy.

If politicians use publicity stunts to gain support, why can't the people?

No, I just got back last night around 9.

The computers are back up and I have been doing work that I've gotten from PR and JB. Not great, but it's OK.

I'm definitely up for the bowling. Hopefully we get some neighbors at the bowling alley that are as competitive and impressive players as our last ones were. You remember them, I assume?
