The little library that could

Wowie!  The UIC library is unsealing the records in its special collections!

The records of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, an organization that Obama chaired and that Ayers co-founded, will be made available to the public Tuesday, UIC said in a statement.

The U. says it “now has legal authority to allow public access to the material,” apparently without specifying this, per AP.  It “had fulfilled the terms of the gift” in 2002 of the records, says Sun-Times.  Again sans specification.

Chi Trib’s Mark Silva i-d’s Ayers as “a radical protestor” of the 60s, having looked himself in the mirror and decided the bomb business — “nonfatal,” he says, as does AP — goes like this: Ayers’s

Weatherman group took credit for bombings that included nonfatal blasts at the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol four decades ago.

He reports (as he sees fit), we decide (he’s at best a dork).

Commenter John D on Silva’s piece:

I love how Mark Silva classifies the Weatherman bombings as “nonfatal” as if since they were nonfatal, that means the bombings were OK. Now, UIC spares the Tribune the embarrassment. Four years ago the Tribune sued to get Jack Ryan’s divorce papers exposed so the paper can destroy Ryan and open the doors to Obama. Today, the Tribune had no interest in getting these files opened.

 

 

White smoke over the guardhouse!

Habemus eum qui stet in vice presidentis!*

The brief text message from the Obama campaign came about 3 a.m., less than three hours after word of the decision had begun leaking out. “Barack has chosen Senator Joe Biden to be our VP nominee. Watch the first Obama-Biden rally live at 3pm ET on http://www.BarackObama.com. Spread the word!”

*We got a veep (candidate)
