The Washington Post today reports on a Quaker from Indianola (that’s across Puget Sound from Shoreline) who is suing the federal government over its Selective Service forms

Tobin D. Jacobrown, 21, wants to be recognized as a conscientious objector. But the forms — required signing by every American male when they turn 18 in the event of a draft — don’t provide that option.

“A big part of my religion is not submitting to any system that you feel is unjust,” Jacobrown told the Post. “And I think this is unjust.”
