Peace, B-School Style

Remember what peace coalitions used to look like? You might go to a rally, say, for "U.S. out of El Salvador," and see tables set up for random groups from labor unions to old timer ban-the-bomb guys to folks selling beads or yoga tapes. Come the revolution, and now we have this: regular boardroom meetings with peaceniks making conference calls to the legislative leadership and conducting nationwide polls.

It remains to be seen whether this is any more effective than the old, haphazard means of protesting.
