Support for Cindy Sheehan Across the Country

The NYT reports on the outpouring of support for Cindy Sheehan:
CRAWFORD, Tex., Aug. 17 - Supporters of Cindy Sheehan held more than 1,500 candlelight vigils across the country on Wednesday night in solidarity with this mother of a soldier killed in Iraq, who has set up a protest encampment down the road from President Bush's ranch here.
My friend Bill Detwiler, who sent me this photo, reports that there were about 150 at the Downingtown vigil in Chester County:
[There were] hundreds of cars honking horns and shouting support as they passed. One heckler stopped with a car load of young guys saying, "What about 9/11?" I took the moment and shouted back "“If you feel so strongly why are you here and not in Baghdad?" They said nothing and took off.
