A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "What are your thoughts on Cindy Sheehan holding vigil outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas?"
"I think that she is a double tragedy in the 'Trojan sense.' She's the 'weeping mother,' the one who has lost her son in battle, but she is also the victim of public relations people who have taken over her simple objections to the war, and have now made her a symbol."
Sally Davidson, Poe Road
"I think that it is a fine idea. The president needs to know that people are unhappy with his performance."
Eric (Huck) Fairman, Mount Lucas Road
"I can't even imagine grieving for the death of my son, and if this is what she has to do, this is what she must do."
Dick Swain, Greenview Avenue
"I want to join her. If my son were not going off to college, and were she still there, I would have jumped on a plane to join her. I wish that everyone would join her. We should not be in this war, and, thank God, she did it in the way she did."
Susan Stein, Snowden Lane
"The president owed her a meeting because her son gave his life for our country. However, given that he already met her, I am not sure she is owed another."
Chiemi York, Grasmere Way
