Emma G. on SNL!
Seriously, though, I have some questions about the comparison between Emma and William Ayers. She was a lifelong anarchist activist who fought for a range of causes including birth control, sexual freedom, workers' rights, women's rights, and free speech. Ayers is a founder of the Weather Underground, a radical organization of the late 1960s and 1970s that bombed buildings to oppose the Vietnam War. While I find Ayers' story an interesting view into the turbulence of the 60s and 70s, I don't think he's in Emma's league. What do you think?
