What better way to spend Easter afternoon?

"Dear George, When you sent me a letter offering your condolences on
the death of my son, Spc. Casey Qustin Sheehan, in the illegal and
unjust war on Iraq, you called me Cindy, so I naturally assume we are
on a first name basis....I do have a big mouth and a righteous cause,
which still mean something in this country....The 56,000,000 plus
citizens who voted against you and your agenda have given me a mandate
to move forward with my agenda...."
--Cindy Sheehan, broken hearted mother.

Preceded by 1:00 pm press conference, open to the public.
Relevant Films afterwards, at 3:30, for those who can stay.
