Those somber, restless days, Joe Gump thought often about the man who came running to Jesus. He had always obeyed the Commandments and now he wanted to know if that was enough for eternal life. No, there is something else, Jesus told him: Sell all you have, take up your cross and follow me. And this had made the man go away grieved, for he had many possessions. So did Joe Gump, actually. He was not rich. But he did have a fine home in the Chicago suburbs and the worldly clutter of 59 years.

Thank you so much for the three-part series on Jean and Joe Gump (Part I, Dec. 4-6). As a peace activist, I knew their names and the particulars of their action. I didn't know them as people, their motivations, and what brought them to those missile silos. Never has the thinking and spirituality of Plowshares activists been so clearly explained. I've never seen anything like this in the mainstream media.

" These days, the Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee runs interference as an outspoken advocate for retired players' benefits, which he has long argued are substandard. His zeal is no less fierce. "I said that if I got in the Hall of Fame," notes the former guard, enshrined in 2003, "I would use it as a platform to do some good things, try to help people who can't help themselves.

An OZ light flashed at Launch Control, which in itself was not so scary. Sensors detect anything that pierces the Outer Zone around a missile silo, and that could mean birds, rabbits or a trickle of water. But then the IZ light blinked on, too. What the heck is that?
