The thing that is more worriesome than the Unabomber-EF connection (real or otherwise) 
is the Al Gore - Unabomber connection. Ted had a copy of Al Gore's book in his little 
shack. Also, if you read the Gore's book "Earth in the balance" and the manifesto there 
are several paragraphs where it is hard to determine who wrote them.  When I showed
these paragraphs to friends they had hard time guessing who wrote which.  I don't care 
that these views are in the marketplace, but it does bother me when they are held by
the Vice-President.
