    60s

    Perhaps I should be more clear. Thw Weather Underground was a violent war protest group in the 60s & 70s.

    Didn't see the documentary but recall hearing about the string of bombings they pulled off. Nowadays, if someone even talks about committing a violent act they get a one way ticket to (without charges) Gitmo.
    I guess they were 'killing for peace', huh?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Ahh! I thought it was odd that there might be a documentary about a weather website. Wonder if they did it on purpose? Read a bit on it, and can vaguely remember it being taught in school. When the war ended so did thier efforts and message best I can tell. Would definitely be an interesting documentary to watch.
