Well, so much for America's so-called "freedom of speech." Cindy Sheehan, the mother of an American soldier killed in Iraq, and who has become a vocal critic of the war, was roughed up in New York City when police broke up an antiwar protest in that city. That was a couple of days ago.

Then yesterday her caravan was on its way to the United States Capitol when it was stopped by police in DC, supposedly to be inspected.

I truly admire Sheehan's courage and moral convictions. Of course, if she had tried that crap here back when I was in power, she would have been imprisoned and tortured, but that's besides the point.
