The next time someone on the left lectures you about how smart Barack Obama, Al Gore, and the like are because they went to Harvard, well, you might wanna mention this certain grad of the Harvard Class of 1962. Not that he isn’t smart. He’s a genius who outsmarted the FBI for years and the only reason he was caught is that his money-grubbing brother finally turned him into the FBI. And you gotta love his chutzpah for the embarrassment factor to Harvard.
I LOOOOOOOOOVE this story!
Harvard University alumni attending their 50th class reunion this week are getting updates on classmates, but one person stands out among those sharing news about career moves, retirements and grandkids — Unabomber Ted Kaczynski.
Kaczynski graduated in 1962 and is locked up in the federal Supermax prison in Colorado for killing three people and injuring 23 during a nationwide bombing spree between 1978 and 1995. In an alumni directory, he lists his occupation as “prisoner” and says his awards are “Eight life sentences, issued by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, 1998.”
It’s an update the alumni association now regrets.
Um, why do they regret it? Are the liberals at Harvard suddenly dropping their facade of caring about criminals and the incarcerated less fortunate? Sure looks like it. Did they forget the Harvard slogan, “Veritas” [Latin for truth]?
The only distress I feel is for Kaczynski’s victims and their loved ones, for whom this isn’t funny. Crocodile tears for Harvard and the class of ’62, though. I laugh as they are seeing crimson.
The alumni association said all class members, including Kaczynski, were invited to submit entries for the class report, distributed for reunion activities during commencement week.
A Harvard spokesman said the update was submitted by Kaczynski but could not immediately say how the university confirmed that. . . .
Kaczynski is a Harvard-trained mathematician who also got master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Michigan.
Yup, my alma mater, Michigan, too. Go Blue, baby! And don’t get blown up for being “against the environment” and for technology.
