Protesting for peace doesn't draw crowds the way it used to. But it still brings jail time for lifelong activists like 75-year-old Rev. Carl Kabat, who first won fame 30 years ago for anti-war demonstrations with the likes of Daniel and Philip Berrigan, and other members of the Plowshares Eight. A fine feature story out of Greeley, Colo., by New York Times reporter Dan Frosch reveals how Kabat's crusade against nuclear weapons at missile silos around the country continues full-force, despite changing times, changing wars and changing enemies. Last month, Kabat was arrested after draping antiwar banners from a fence by a Minuteman III nuclear missile silo, Frosch reports.
