Cindy Sheehan visit

Sorry to hog the page today.
Got a couple of posts up at The Mill (one of The Carrboro Citizen's sites) about Cindy Sheehan's visit to Carrboro for lunch with the mayor and members of the Grass Roots Impeachment Movement.
She says she'll run against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi if the Speaker doesn't put "impeachment on the table" by Monday. Audio clip on The Mill.

Typical of the media,

I had to get the story ablout Ms. Sheehan's visit to Greensboro Bennett College (I was there) from New Zealand

There was a determined man with a camera but he didn't stay through the entire speech Sheehan gave. I don't know if it aired on a news chanel locally but G'd Almighty what does it take to get the attention of the media? Do we have to start setting ourselves on fire to get attention? Oh, never mind, Carlos did that when he got the news of his son's death in Iraq. It was on the news pronto.

Carlos and Melida Arrredondo: Their son, Lcpl. Alexander Arredondo, USMC KIA in Najaf, Iraq on 8/25/04

Some pics ...

Here's some pictures of the event to complement Kirk's professional efforts.

She actually met with me,

She actually met with me, b/c my boss was in DC. She was very nice and very determined. She seemed surprised at how open our office was to her.
She was kind enough to warn me of a reporter that was trying to appear as if he was one of the activists.
