A partial examination of the documents did not reveal anything startling about the link between Obama, the Democratic presidential contender, and Ayers, a founder of the Weather Underground, a Vietnam-era anti-war group that claimed responsibility for several bombings. Ayers, who spent years in hiding, is now a UIC education professor.

Huh, no shit. There are Chicago links of much greater interest and concern (it's kind of messed up, but you can still read most of it; see also), like to this guy--who has heretofore been much more closely involved with Ayers with much less controversy--but there doesn't seem to be any interest in the finer points of local politics. I guess it's hard to turn a popular mayor into an albatross but it seems more engrossing than the shitfit over the DNC backdrop.
