Half Fast

Here's one for the Completely Useless Forms of Political Protest file: Mildred Ruth Gordon and her every-other-day fast.

According to wikipedia, "The effort to enforce Selective Service registration law was abandoned in 1986."

I wonder if she kept up her protest that long.

I think EVERY young person should spend a couple of years in service to their country whether it be in uniformed military, coast guard, or street sweeping as long as it included weapons training also.
