This from the lead federal prosecutor of the Weathermen/Weather Underground in the 1970s:
Although I dearly wanted to obtain convictions against all the Weathermen, including Bill Ayers, I am very pleased to learn that he has become a responsible citizen.
So there you have it. The lead prosecutor on the case is pleased to learn that Ayers has become a responsible citizen in the last 20-some years. Is he “putrid and pathetic, partisan, and beyond the pale.” too?
