Apologies for Bush

The Seattle Times has this explanation why Bush refused to see Cindy Sheehan, despite her vigil of nearly two weeks. It seems administration officials saw her demand for a meeting as the first of hundreds or thousands of similar demands from ordinary people for the president's time.

Jesus had the same problem, crowds flocking to Him for healing and encouragement. And He didn't turn them away. As the New York Times' Frank Rich puts it: "When Mr. Bush's motorcade left a grieving mother in the dust to speed on to a fund-raiser, that was one fat-cat party too far."
