Don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows....
We're super relieved no one was hurt in today's crazy-ass Times Square bombing but thought one bit of conspiracy theory motive interesting: that it occurred the same day that the Weather Underground mistakenly set off a bomb in the Greenwich Village townhouse, which killed three of the group and sent the rest truly underground, where they stayed for over a decade.
If you don't know, the Weathermen were basically a group of radical leftists who thought the only way to advance the causes of social justice were through the violent overthrow of the existing order.
This was a pretty cool movie about them.
One interesting local note: Great, dimly lit Morningside Heights bar Night Cafe used to owned by an ex-Weatherman. Was, 'cuz sadly, Night Cafe is no more
