There Goes the Neighborhood

Cindy Sheehan has taken the insurance money from her son's death to move closer to her place of business.

Cindy Sheehan Buys Property in Crawford

"We decided to buy property in Crawford to use until George's resignation or impeachment, which we all hope is soon for the sake of the world," Sheehan said in a newsletter set to be sent to supporters Thursday. "I can't think of a better way to use Casey's insurance money than for peace, and I am sure that Casey approves."

So, if President Bush does not resign or is not impeached, maybe she can sell the land and donate the proceeds to a grieving father who actually supports the troops. Oh, contrast what Sheehan thinks that her son would want versus what this father thinks his son would want.

A soft-spoken suburban real-estate broker, John Prazynski didn't consider himself political and never expected to become a public figure, much less a pro-war activist. But in the year since his son Taylor, a Marine, died in Iraq, Prazynski has devoted much of his time to supporting the troops through fundraisers, two trips to Camp Lejeune, N.C., and interviews backing the war effort.

"I could easily have gone the other way," Prazynski said. He says his activism is a tribute to his son, trying to "make something positive happen out of something so negative. That's what Taylor would want us to do."

Do you suspect that this father might have a better feel for a fallen soldier's desires to help those who fought with him? I believe that this man is driven by a sincere love of his son and his son's interests instead of personal attention for himself--unlike possibly some others. I wish John Prazynski the best; and, his help groups, Impact Player Partners and Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, deserve our support. Investments in people give better returns than five acres in middle Texas.

One aspect that nobody is noting is the utter silence of Casey's father (at least publically). This whole escalating behavior of Cindy must be extremely hard on him. I think we need to remember him in our prayers.

CT, I completely forgot about Cindy Sheehan's former husband. I'm sorry for the loss of his son, but he's better off divorced from Cindy.

People should read the story linked above covering John Prazynski. He's a class act.
