A recent disappointment has been problems and disputes at the Crawford Peace House in President Bush’s hometown of Crawford, Texas.
The Crawford Peace House was, among other things, a staging area for people coming to see Iraq War Protester Cindy Sheehan in the summer of 2004. I made that drive from Houston and I saw Ms. Sheehan.
The Associated Press Story here gives the details. I don’t really care about the specifics. It involves money and, it seems, personal disputes. Whatever.
I just know that the folks involved need to work it out. The operation at the Peace House was a good thing about my trip to Crawford. They had a system of shuttle vans driven by volunteers that took visitors out to Ms. Sheehan’s big white tent near the president’s ranch. (I did put money in the donation jar to pay my way.)
The parties in this dispute are letting down those who have a good memory from 2004 and they are letting down the entire peace community.
