The Lone Star Iconoclast

In August, 2005, the Lone Star Iconoclast, a local newspaper in Crawford, Texas, began reporting on Cindy Sheehan's vigil outside George Bush's compound. The reaction from the right wing was swift and furious. Somehow, this still, small voice amidst the furor continued to report in spite of the threats and retributions.

The have published a book, detailing the experience at Crawford from the start of Cindy's vigil up until now. The pressure on them to "just hush up" is tremendous, but they are steadfast in their mission to bring us the truth of what's happening on the ground -- and what happens to people who speak out against the Bush mis-administration.
