WASHINGTON -- Although the prospect of diplomatic talks with Iraq has muffled criticism of the Bush administration in some quarters of Congress, it apparently hasn't slowed the momentum of the nation's small but growing anti-war movement."

I could not help note that while reading "NSA tracks location of phones, documents show" (Dec. 5), there was a nearby ad for a cell phone and other electronic devices. Readers should also know that the National Security Agency provides "intelligence" in coordinating killer drone strikes. Later in the same newspaper, was an excellent perspective on this aerial assassination program - "Drone warfare half-truths.

It was a '90s-style peace movement but the symbolism was vintage '60s.Even before the war started, peace activists had begun to wrap a social movement around the Persian Gulf conflict. Chanting '60s-style peace slogans, protesters lashed out at American icons -- the White House, the United Nations, the Pentagon -- and across the nation, sporadic and often spontaneous protests drew thousands of supporters.It was a movement with '60s props: peace symbols, tie-dyshirts, sit-ins and teach-ins, and fiery speeches by Daniel Ellsberg and Philip Berrigan.

I appreciate the attention The Sun has devoted to President Barack Obama's plan to attack Syria - articles, letters and commentaries. There is little debate, though, as the vast majority of the people oppose this counter-productive strategy. I despise the tyranny of Bashar Assad's government, but he should be isolated and eventually brought to justice. He will not suffer from a U.S. attack, but Syrian people are sure to experience death and destruction. As the peace movement protests President Obama's potentially reckless plunge into the abyss, some elected officials are ignoring the voices of the people.

Terrorists in Baltimore! Homicides and shootings are way up since September 11. Do something. Shanghai knows how to hold an economic summit without street riff-raff misbehaving. Anti-war demonstations on U.S. campuses may be all right, but where they really need a peace movement is in the madrassas of Pashtunistan. Bad news. The trade deficit declined. That's right: bad news; bad.

In the wake of the Los Angeles riots, Marithe and Francois Girbaud, the French designers of jeans and other casual wear popular with urban American youth, have introduced an educational program they call the "Peace Movement."The course includes exercises in self-awareness and communication skills for sixth, seventh and eighth graders, "so they can learn to negotiate and mediate differences without resorting to violence," said a company statement.The exercises will be presented this month to students and teachers in middle schools in the Greensboro, N.C., area, where the Girbaud manufacturing operations are based.

Howard Wimer is a guy who believes in following a hunch to happiness.Seventeen years ago he turned his back on a promising Los Angeles career as a producer of educational and promotional films, and as a one-time personal assistant to comedian Steve Allen, and followed his hunch into the Inner Peace Movement.He's been there ever since, traveling the world teaching people how to get in touch with their four "spiritual" or psychic "gifts" -- intuition, prophecy, vision and healing -- which he says can lead them to greater personal contentment and success.

I watched 60 Minutes on Sunday and saw the anguish still being experienced by the Sandy Hook parents. Their grief has caused them to turn to action, and they are in Washington to lobby Congress to pass legislation that might prevent other gun tragedies. On Monday, I read "Johns Hopkins graduate dies in bomb explosion in Afghanistan," (April 8). Anne Smedinghoff's father Tom was quoted, "She was 'always trying to get out and do things for the population.'" I wondered if she ever noticed our Friday War Is Not the Answer vigils outside Homewood Friends Meetinghouse, across from the Hopkins campus, ongoing since 2001.

Joe Tropea thought he was writing a research paper on the Catonsville Nine, a group of Catholic anti-war activists who set draft records ablaze outside a Selective Service office in 1968. But what he was really working on was a movie script. "I just got hooked on telling the story," Tropea says of the six-year film project, undertaken with co-director Skizz Cyzyk, that will be getting its local premiere during this week's 15th Maryland Film Festival. The festival starts Wednesday and runs through Sunday.

Children don't believe their parents had a life of their own before they were born, just as children don't believe their parents actually did anything to bring them into being. So I purchased a pair of tickets to the revival of "Hair" at the Kennedy Center Opera House in order to prove both points to my 20-something daughter. She bailed on me. She was sweet about it, but she had a work commitment and — what irony here — I could not argue that seeing "Hair" trumped a job. So I went with my friend Betsy who, coincidentally, had a role in the Paris production of "Hair" while studying abroad during her sophomore year of college.

Thirty years ago, when the United States was fighting the war in Vietnam, much of the peace movement revolved around the college campus. Then, anti-war protest was often associated with words like "counterculture" and "draft dodger." Today's protesters arrive from a different era, the age of a volunteer army. This week in New York, a well-dressed middle-age man was part of the protest. He bore a sign that read: Corporate Attorneys Against the War. When other demonstrators decided to make themselves heard, they blocked Fifth Avenue by staging a "die-in."

The mourners filled the street yesterday in West Baltimore because Philip Berrigan gave focus to the anti-war movement 40 years ago. They packed a black parish because Mr. Berrigan confronted racism and patriarchy and injustice long after the civil rights movement. They braved sub-freezing temperatures to say farewell to an artilleryman and infantry lieutenant turned Roman Catholic priest, remembered as a husband, father, peace activist and prisoner. "I didn't know him but I've been a longtime admirer of him so I came here out of respect," said Michael Redmond, 50, who drove from Philadelphia to join several hundred mourners.

NEW YORK CITY -- Daniel Berrigan listens to the joyous throng sing Happy Birthday and then flashes the wry, wide smile that has illuminated nearly four decades of protest in America.Hard-earned lines crease his famous smile. But it is as bright and radiant as on that day in 1970 when he was led away to jail as one of the Catonsville Nine anti-war "conspirators."The Rev. Daniel Berrigan, poet-priest of the peace movement, turns 75 on Thursday. His hair is silver-gray and silken under his trademark black cap, his eyes deep-set and shadowed, but still warm and penetrating.

Fellow pilgrims, the peace movement has stalled in Cockeysville. But fear not. A peace messenger, who envisions TRUE HARMONY and LOVE on earth, also dreams of a new engine for his Econoline van."That's my sick baby," says James Edward Goodnow, messenger for peace but no auto mechanic. He stares into the Econoline's spent engine, hoping the van will heal itself. They aren't going anywhere for a while.Peace, as usual, must wait.Goodnow goes back to the house -- one of those grand old homes planted on a hill.
