112. Here's a Note I Just Sent to the Associated Press
The Associated Press has reported that a "patriotic"
camp has been set up to protest the "anti-war"
position of Cindy Sheehan's Camp Casey.  By your choice of
words you are misrepresenting not only the goals of Ms.
Sheehan and her followers, but the actions of true patriots
throughout U.S. history.  It is the Sheehan people who are
the patriots, for they are speaking out for the freedoms upon
which our great country is founded.  They are seeking the
truth from powerful people who would deny U.S. citizens
freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.  While the counter
demonstrators have every right to express their position, it
is very wrong of you to call them "patriots."   The
Associated Press should be more careful with its choice of
words, particularly when it involves matters of life and
death.
