It was in this kind of political atmosphere, then — one of near complete political isolation — that rally attendees heard Cindy Sheehan wonder whether ‘the honeymoon was over with that war criminal in the White House.’ Sheehan’s remark was met, according to AP, with merely ‘moderate applause’...

Whose Streets?

(Our Streets between 1pm and 4pm With a Permit)
