I didn't say it was. I tried to keep my tone speculative, so there's no need to take exception. And conditions need not be extreme. Jeff Jones of the Weathemen spoke here in the fall of 69. Afterwards we had an SDS meeting. I still remember the sinking feeling in my stomach as two people I thought I shared political solidarity with began right in the midst of the discussion to spout weatherman rhetoric.

Twenty-five years is relevant to a given inidividual, Ralph Nader, but not particularly relevant to the general topic.
