    Bereaved mother camps outside Bush ranch

    Casey Sheehan did not want to go to Iraq, but he did not want to let down his buddies. So despite his mother's offer to whisk him away to Canada or run his leg over with a car, off he went. Less than two weeks later, the 24-year-old from Zacaville, California, was dead, one of eight soldiers killed in an ambush near Baghdad.

    Good luck Cindy, I'm hoping you nail Bush soon.

      •  Great, but don't protest Chinese military in China (none)
        It's good to see that papers on the other side of the world are picking up Sheehan's story, but I'm simply not a fan of governmental suppression of speech anywhere.
