A couple footnotes.

1) Very minor: what Ron refers to as RYM 1 was RYM2 -- the original RYM
had i ncluded both weather people and the later RYM2

2) It was simply impossible to carry on a discussion with Weather. They
didn't listen. (Lou Proyect speaking of Brenner or Wood gives the flavor
of Weatherman style.)

3) Fred Hampton's speeches around Chicago during the last weeks of his
life always began with a severe criticism of Weatherman. Any action they
took in response to his death was an insult to his memory.
