Old farts relive their youth

As political protesters.
Attending yesterday's private lunch were about 100 anti-war activists, many of them silver-haired, bespectacled veterans of the 1960s in linty sweaters and Naturalizers, nibbling on vegan pizza and bean sprouts. On the wall was a painted collage of slogans ("Make Love Not War") and nostalgic faces such as Joan Baez, Bella Abzug and a younger, thinner Ralph Nader.

Conversations at the forum centered on the war in Iraq, impeachment of Mr. Bush, torture, eavesdropping on citizens, conspiracy theories, global warming and coup d'etats.
