  • New Guard Inner
  • Convicted Terrorist Now a Professor at Columbia and NYU

    BoudinMugFile this under crazy. The New York Post has the story:

     

    Former Weather Underground radical Kathy Boudin - who spent 22 years in prison for an armored-car robbery that killed two cops and a Brinks guard - now holds a prestigious adjunct professorship at Columbia University's School of Social Work, The Post has learned.

    Boudin, 69, this year won another academic laurel - being named the Sheinberg Scholar-in-Residence at NYU Law School, where last month she gave a lecture on "the politics of parole and re-entry."

    So, what do you have to do get this gig, you ask? Well, obviously being the wheelwoman for the armed robbery of a Brinks armored truck didn't hurt. 

    In 1981, members of the Weather Underground (the same folks who bombed the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol) and Black Liberation Army unsuccessfully tried to rob a Brinks armored truck outside a mall in Nanuet, New York. An armored truck guard was killed in the botched attempt, along with two police officers. Boudin and the others were caught. Boudin ended up pleading guilty to a lesser charge and face a lesser penalty: 22 years in prison.

    “She doesn’t deserve a job at all,” Josephine Paige, wife of the murdered Brinks guard, Peter, told the New York Post. “She doesn’t deserve anything, nothing at all. I think she should be back in an institution.”

     

    She teaches on the issues facing citizens reintegrating into society after being in jail for many years.

    “I’m happy that she’s doing something positive with her life,” said Robert Van Cura, Rockland County’s undersheriff, to the Post. But he said, “I believe there’s probably other people that are available to provide education beyond someone who is on parole for murder.”

    I couldn't have said it better myself, sheriff.

    • I am new to this website and I find it good. I am not an american citizen, and "boudin" means both "sausage" and "fat ugly woman" in my language. So I found this article funny to read, for I am not a person who needs much to laugh. And yes, I am french.

    • I followed this repcie and they turned out so hard!! But I ate them anyways and let them melt in my mouth and they were so delcious. It is about heat, rather than ingredients right? Maybe my thermometer is off because I only let them get to 248, but still very hard!Any suggestions?

    • If they are too soft at room temperature, the next time you cook them, you might try watniig until the temperature reaches a few degrees higher (but not too much higher). Maybe stop around 250 degrees.
