Joan Baez performing at war protest near Bush ranch



CRAWFORD, Texas Anti-war protesters camping out near President Bush's ranch are getting support from a prominent figure in the anti-Vietnam war movement: folk singer Joan Baez.

Baez is planning a free concert in Bush's adopted hometown tonight that's expected to draw more than one-thousand people. It's being held on a one-acre lot offered by a landowner who opposes the war.

Not far away, protesters are continuing a camp-out started by grieving Vacaville mother, Cindy Sheehan. Sheehan's son -- Army Specialist Casey Sheehan -- died last year in Iraq.

Meanwhile, more Bush supporters have been arriving at a downtown pro-Bush camp. As of this afternoon, more than 150 people had visited "Fort Qualls."

The camp is named for Marine Lance Corporal Louis Wayne Qualls, who was killed in Fallujah last fall.
