The LBO-talk list funnies

Assuming this is true, a positive outcome would depend on whether she can as strongly apply her personality to this issue as she's appliedher self to the demand to meet GWB. Which insinuates that her energytoward her goal would be diverted, drained, just confronting the situation, and within the gaze of the media, which would feed on the story like sharks.But given the directness of the naming of names here, I'd saysomeone has a personal problem with Fenton Communications.And it's probably not Cindy Sheehan.

Just a little gnawing feeling at the back of my brainpan say it'sall probably B.S., or Cindy Sheehan is aware of it and it's not a problem for her, but it might be for other interested parties.Including the media. When's the last time anyone we know was "ratpacked" by the national & international media in full feeding frenzy.

Without Fenton, and people like them, Cindy Sheehan would be psychologically raped by AP/CNN/Reuters stringers and other assorted parasitic vermin that prey on: "celebrities".

Why progressive in scare quotes? Fenton started in the Liberation News Service in the 60's (read theRay Mungo autobios. on LNS, howlingly funny), did PR for the Angolansof the MPLA vs. Savimbi, worked for Maurice Bishop (I assume w/ DonRojas), the FSLN and the FMLN.-- Michael Pugliese
