What do you mean by right-opportunist? I wasn't aware that calling
attention to the foolishness of setting off pipe-bombs in the name of "the
people" was right-opportunist. Who are you, anyhow? A middle-aged veteran
of SDS-Weathermen still fighting battles of the 1960s and 70s like a
Japanese soldier on some Pacific atoll who hasn't learned that WWII is
over? Pathetic.

As far as Gilbert is concerned, I am not sure that there is much in the
way of a campaign to win his release, judging by the worldwide web.
Instead of writing me poison pen letters, you might spend your time more
effectively in this effort.
