Message from your host, john d.: President Bush had merely to walk down the road a week ago and talk to Ms. Sheehan. He chose to remain in his cocoon of apathy. Cindy Sheehan is one of hundreds of mothers who have lost children to Bush's war of choice. In a country that is full of riches, Bush asked that we sacrifice nothing except the blood of your young. His administration has done its best to make this war just another spectator sport, with no real loss, hidden caskets, and cheery proclamations of success. As a result, thousands are spending vulgar amounts on things like baseball games, while family, friends and fellow citizens face mortal danger every minute halfway around the world for a cruel hoax of a war. Although the Pirates are in New York this week, we must remind Pirates fans and all Pittsburghers of the costs of this totally avoidable bloodshed that goes on while they're having a zippity do dah good time of things.
