I agree that the war in Iraq is the moral issue of our time.  I also agree that the Columbus City Council has ample reason to pass the "City for Peace" resolution.

However, I must also agree with the Dispatch that passing the resolution would be largely an empty gesture.  As evidence, I would point to the 283 cities, 10 counties, and 17 state legislatures which have already passed such resolutions, with no discernible effect.

I think it's time -- no, past time -- to do something more concrete.  My idea was published in The Free Press a few weeks ago.

I'm open to a better one.
