'Morning Edition' Returns: Billboard Deal Reached

An activist group has defused a controversy over a billboard protesting the Iraq war. Project Billboard had intended to put up in New York's Times Square a picture of a bomb decorated with stars and stripes reading "Democracy is best taught by example, not war." Clear Channel, which rented the space to the group, objected. The group has now agreed to change the bomb to a dove, plus a ticker tape showing the cost of the war.
