"Francisco Rafael Arellano Felix, the eldest brother of Mexico's once-feared Arellano Felix drug clan, was shot to death in the Baja beach resort of Los Cabos by a gunman wearing a clown costume, authorities said today. "
Just made this video to acknowledge some of the folks who helped me figure out nuances with the New Left of the 1960s and 1970s. Have to do the narration later, since my mic only wants to pick up background noise rather than my voice. Short Clip for Time Bomber the Book of those who answered my inquiries
Accidentally found a better location in downtown Knoxville, TN to shoot a little clip for the Time Bomber book trailer and crowd funding video. A tiny bit where I reveal some of the folks I corresponded with on the project, like two of the Weathermen, Peter Coyote (of the Diggers and he is the actor too), and Paul Krassner of the Youth International Party (YIP, the Yippies). The concept for that little snippet is a total ripoff of the Bob Dylan video for "Subterranean Homesick Blues."
Among the many viewers were future President Jimmy Carter, who commuted Steen's convictions under his amnesty program for draft resisters, acting to "heal the nation". Another person watching was David Byrne, composer for the rock band Talking Heads, who wrote the popular song "Life During Wartime" to memorialize the 60 Minutes episode. In the interview with Rather, Steen stated that it "was time for members of Weather Underground Organization to emerge and engage change at the community level in this post-draft, post-Vietnam era." Mark Rudd resurfaced within 60 days and the remainder of the fugitive Weather Underground, including Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers surrendered to authorities over the next 22 months.
I deleted the last sentence that used to read "Steen became the last of the Weathermen to surface in 2012."
How that got in there to begin with is amazing, since the whole page is full of his activities and accomplishments, under his real identity, ever since his sentences were commuted by Carter in 1977.
