Guess Who? The Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers

Written by Donald Joy on April 24, 2013

With any luck, however, a federal judge will find that in the process of investigating and arresting him on that recent, troublesome weapons charge stemming from a wild performance at a sports event (Lord & Taylor’s loss prevention department seems to carry a grudge against his mother over a past shoplifting beef, and turned their surveillance tapes over to detectives), the police broke some procedural rule, and he will skip out of court a free man, exclaiming his triumph to the fawning press.

After that, he’ll be able to resume his college studies on the athletic scholarship awarded to him shortly before he obtained U.S. citizenship last year.  

Then, the path will be clear on to the Ivy League for graduate work and teaching — with writing books, the national lecture circuit, a full professorship, serving on the boards of multi-million dollar foundations, and a key role in high-level politics all in the cards.

All signs point to this fresh face of activism having an enduring, key role in the future of our country; especially in the scholastic development of our urban youth, in our kids’ mandated federal school curricula itself, and even our choice of presidents.

We’ve certainly seen it happen before.
