The story also reports: “Most members of Mothers Against War are grandmothers in their seventies whose lives are already full. Yet they spend hours a day on the Internet, reading and spreading information on Iraq and the United States and planning for marches, e-mail campaigns and teach-ins. Having lived through the Vietnam antiwar movement, which took years to build, the Mothers Against War are buoyed to find themselves part of a fast-growing movement of people from every walk of life, from every political stripe.”
Translation: Aging peaceniks with too much time on their hands. It must depress the Nation so much that leftwing movements are glorified potluck dinners for aging hippies. So much for never trusting anybody over thirty.
