    There should be somewhere a memorial to anti war activists who do not have
    the benifit of govt stipends and burial plots and VA medical care but still
    "serve" their country. And like the new trend in memorials it should have
    their names on it. But how to do it is the question? It would take some
    team work and is that possible today? I for one am into it but it needs to be
    a group effort. cheers, country joe mcdonald
