About this ebook

Though land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles are sitting ducks on hair-trigger alert, they have their supporters: the air force, the aero-space industry, and people whose jobs may depend on them.

So who will campaign against a new, unnecessary, and dangerous silo-based missile?

Why a seventy-eight-year-old red-headed widow, of course, who sometimes wears a witch’s hat.
