AUGUST 16--Meet Larry Northern. The Texas man, 59, was arrested last night and charged with criminal mischief for allegedly driving his pickup truck over wooden crosses erected near the roadside campsite of Cindy Sheehan, the California woman who has brought her antiwar protest to President George W. Bush's Crawford doorstep. A row of the memorial crosses, which carry the names of U.S. soldiers killed during the Iraq war, were destroyed when Northern, a Waco resident, allegedly drove his truck (which was dragging a pipe and chains) over them. The crosses are part of an encampment Sheehan has dubbed "Camp Casey" in honor of her late son, a 24-year-old Army Specialist killed in action last year. Sheehan has said she will not budge from the road leading to the president's ranch until he meets with her to explain "why our sons are dead."
Yes, you are right in the long run. When I saw the woman on Austin TV (the mother who hugged the Iraqi woman at one of President Bush's speeches), I thought: wouldn't it be nice if someone did a commercial featuring pro-military mothers coming out in support of the military and the war and the President. A sort of Swift Vets type commercial saying Cindy is wrong about her son's service?
And they would've all been killed by nerve gas and M16 fire.
The looks on the liberals faces would be well worth any legal hassles incurred.
Larry is my new hero and I would love to buy this guy a beer and give him $20 towards his legal defense.
