You know, perusing the latest newsletter (PDF) from Operation Clean Government, it occurred to me that, if somebody were to piece together all of the discrete (and too discreet) bits of advocacy writing from around the state of Rhode Island, it might amount to a full-sized publication. The audience might be limited, of course; unleavened advocacy can wear on a reader. (Although the larger problem might be that everybody knows what the problems are, just not how to convince everybody else that it’s worth their time to understand and work to fix them.)
But the point is that there are various groups working for change in the same general direction. Perhaps what’s needed at this juncture is an advocacy group to tie together the advocacy groups.
