Bush: You Can Ride, But You Can’t Hide

This slogan was on a sign in Crawford, Texas when I was there supporting and joining Cindy Sheehan’s protest of our Iraq invasion. Bush vacationed in, then fled his Crawford ranch to avoid her.
He did it again yesterday, flying to Austin to view the relief efforts and bolster his image. The devastation is in East Texas and Louisianna.
At least one news agency, CNN, has reported that he was fleeing the white house because of the March. The hurricane cancelled my airticket to be there and I so wish I could have participated. The overwhelming numbers who participated make this a bright day for our future.
I agree with Mary who points out that there is a groundswell that the media will no longer be able to ignore.
Arts pieces and comedy are great elements of this growing awareness.
