We're still at war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Remember? The troops do, certainly. And so do peace activists, including nine Minnesotans who were arrested with four others for staging a "die in" at the White House on Jan. 26. Sue Ann Martinson has a first-person account at The Daily Planet.

Updated: Longtime war opponent Steve Clemens was among those who spent the night in jail after being charged charged with disorderly conduct and unlawful assembly. That conduct included reading aloud the names of 77 Minnesotans killed in the war. FBI whistleblower-turned activist Coleen Rowley was part of the protest, but not arrested, Clemens tells us.
