Harvard Hotbed? Amy Bishop Was Bombing Suspect in 1993

The Boston Globe has a new report on Dr. Amy Bishop, "Alleged Ala. Killer Was Suspect in Attempted Bombing of Harvard Professor" (via Memeorandum).

Don Surber comments:
What could possibly top this story?

The Boston Globe reported: “The professor who is accused of killing three colleagues at the University of Alabama on Friday was a suspect in the attempted mail bombing of a Harvard Medical School professor in 1993, a law enforcement official said today. Amy Bishop and her husband, James Anderson, were questioned after a package containing two bombs was sent to the Newton home of Dr. Paul Rosenberg, a professor and doctor at Boston’s Children’s Hospital… Sylvia Fluckiger, a lab technician who worked with Bishop at the time, said Bishop had been in a dispute with Rosenberg shortly before the bombs were discovered.”

How does a woman with a history like this get through Harvard?

Theodore Kaczynski, Bill Ayers and now Amy Bishop. Don’t mess with professors — if you don’t want to be blown up.

Calling someone a professor was considered racist last week; this week it is said in fear.
Bill Ayers didn't attend Harvard (although he may have helped Barack Obama get in), but both Theodore Kaczynski and Amy Bishop did. It's not a statistical pattern, by any means. And if we look around we'd find other similar coincidences. But something about Don's post just rang the eerie bells. First it was Harvard and socialism. Now it's Harvard and terrorism. Again, no statistical significance, but seriously, what could possibly top this?

More details here, in any case: "
Crimes, Cover-ups and Fringe Science."

That isn't all that surprising.

What is surprising is how she hot hired at UAB Huntsville.

Does no one do background checks anymore?
