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?

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.
