  1. Good post Andre. I don’t know how I missed it.

    I completely agree. I’m glad Bill Ayers finally spoke up. But I think this needed to be done earlier. Had it not been for certain other factors, the Ayers/Wright storylines could have been the nail in the Obama camp’s coffin. YOu could listen to some of the rhetoric coming from Palin and notice the responses of her supporters and tell this was going to be a major issue. Had Ayers attempted to extinguish those flames earlier…

    Oh well, better late than never I always say.

  2. Meg,

    I think what bothered me most was that the Ayers was being depicted/allowing himself to be depicted fell tragically short of what kind of person he was. I first heard him speak at a conference when I was an undergraduate. Before then, I never knew about him blowing stuff up. His message spoke to social justice, activism, and undoing racism. These items are a far cry from terrorism.
