Cindy Sheehan Update
Some real estate pros
think she got taken to the cleaners on the land she bought in Crawford.Even so, some real estate experts say they're not accustomed to seeing land selling for $10,500 an acre in Crawford.
When he heard that price, Bert Smith with Re-Max Greater Waco Realty said he wondered "why someone would pay so much." He's familiar with the Crawford area, even owns land there, and says five-acre tracts typically sell for $5,000 to $6,000 an acre.
Meanwhile, she's resting, having been hospitalized twice in the last week
:Sheehan was hospitalized in Seattle on Thursday night and again at Providence Health Center in Waco on Friday and Saturday.
She was released Sunday and has divided her recuperation between Willie Nelson’s home in Austin and a hotel in McGregor so she can use the hotel’s wireless internet and stay close to peace camp associates, Burns said.
Others are having problems with the fast
:Jane Jackson, 70, was taken to Highland Hospital's emergency room Sunday after fasting for 41 days as part of the national Troops Home Fast action.
"She's doing OK," her co-faster, Ivan Olsen, reported Monday. They started their fast July 4 in front of the White House with a group that included Cindy Sheehan and Dick Gregory. Olsen and Jackson continued their fast and vigil in front of the federal building in Oakland.
Looks like Cindy was cheating with her Jamba Juice:Olsen, 60, a Bay Area artist-activist, said this is his first fast.
"I feel wonderful physically. I had 35 to 45 pounds I could lose," he said. Fasters drink a mixture of water, lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne.
