Fed Up With Protest

At least one of President Bush's neighbors in Crawford, Texas, seems to be getting fed up with a growing anti-war protest.

As dozens of demonstrators gathered on the road leading to the president's ranch, a shot was fired into the air.

Deputies rushed to the home of Larry Mattlage, who admitted firing his shotgun, but he says it was to prepare for dove-hunting season. When asked if he had another motive, he said, "Figure it out for yourself."

Mattlage says he wasn't threatening anyone, adding, "This is Texas."

The anti-war vigil began earlier this month. It was started by Cindy Sheehan, whose son was killed in action in Iraq. She says she plans to stay outside the Bush ranch for three more weeks.
