A2: Bill Ayers

On his blog There Is No Gap, Karl Pohrt writes about an email exchange he had with someone upset that Shaman Drum Bookshop was hosting Monday night’s reading by Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn at UM’s Hatcher Graduate Library. Pohrt, who owns Shaman Drum, writes: “The current downturn in the economy has increased feelings of vulnerability, uncertainty and fear for all of us. Despite the ecstatic celebrations for our new President earlier this week, perhaps there has been an actual decline in social tolerance. I hope I’m wrong.” [Source]
