You know her as the woman who camped on the doorstep of George W. Bushs Crawford Ranch in the summer of 2005. Cindy Sheehans month-long peace action, held after her son, Casey, was killed in Iraq, drew daily CNN coverage. Dubbed Camp Casey by the media, Sheehans makeshift camp stood for nearly a month, and led to her later-life career as a political activist and author.
Sheehans most recent work is Myth America: The 10 Greatest Myths of the Robber Class and the Case for Revolution, an Internet booklet in which she busts the mythology she claims all Americans have fallen for. (Sample myths: Myth One: America: Greatest Nation in the Universe! and Myth Ten: 19 Muslims with box cutters were responsible for 9/11.)
