1. A blog written by antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan and posted on MichaelMoore.com criticizes Charlotte police for allowing counter-protesters to “try to intimidate us” during Sheehan’s antiwar rally Tuesday in Bryant Park.
2. Protesters demonstrating against Cindy Sheehan vowed to make an impact on the anti-war activist’s trip to Charlotte on Tuesday — and their strategy worked. Sheehan, one of the best-known opponents of the war in Iraq, stayed close to her still-running car.
