Arizona's Innocents Abroad

The Babbitts preach democracy in the unlikely precincts of Nicaragua

It is a good question to ask. Here is another.
Today, like every Wednesday, the Valley Religious Task Force, will conduct its silent prayer vigil in front of the Federal building at First Avenue and Van Buren in downtown Phoenix. They will leaflet passersby and urge they contact Senator Dennis DeConcini regarding cuts to the half-billion dollars our government sends yearly to El Salvador.

Friday is the tenth anniversary of the assassination of Archbishop Oscar Romero by the Salvadoran right-wing death squads.

Do people still believe the moral example of the clerics and their followers can bring the FMLN guerrillas and government of El Salvador to a negotiating table?
