Bill Ayers Tells His Side: 'A Bit Surreal'
Those days were turbulent, as many groups with political issues had the publics eye, even a resulting "police riot" in New York's Attica State prison, a 45rpm song by John Lennon, also once of the "Beatles", who we've found under the US federal "freedom" FOIA (FOIL a law in New York State) to have been followed around by agents even onto the then State University of NY at Stony Brook, perhaps over his association with people of his native lands, Ireland. I wouldn't be surprised if Mr. Ayers was an explosives "party pooper". I attended a public high school back then with a Marine Corps "junior" ROTC, a college campus "senior" one "blown-up" supposedly over the "Vietnam War" (undeclared by Congress) with lots of called in "bomb scares" where all student lockers were searched. Twenty plus organizations claimed responsibility over the phone for the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993 I recall. $1 billion a year in 20,000 mostly poor school districts were spent on that program reported by "Defense Monitor" on PBS in the early 1990s. My high school was in Selden, NY named after the judge who testified as a "character witness" at the trial of Susan B. Anthony who broke the law when she posed as a man to vote in an Upstate election. Now remember volunteer firemen (any women in it?) to report any suspicious materials or other "strange" things you might see in the course of inspections, community charity fundraisers, etc. Read the Article at HuffingtonPost
