(Because it only exists in my head. If you like it and have the skills, run with it. I got this idea on Friday, then discovered Bob Owen’s chilling must read “What If” piece about Fort Dix. This stuff is on the table for free, GOP.)

One night in March, 1970, hundreds of young servicemen and their dates
gathered for a dance at Fort Dix.
[one by one the photos are lit in a corner, curl up and burn. If home movies are used, employ oozing burn effect of a hot projector bulb.]
A terrorist group planned to set off a pipe bomb at that dance.
A second bomb full of nails was set to go off minutes later, to kill and maim rescuers.
Had they succeeded, it might have killed more people than the Oaklahoma City Bombing.
Killed more young men than John Wayne Gacy.
Killed more young women than Ted Bundy.

The plan to bomb the Fort Dix dance failed.
But the group killed and maimed others, in their self-declared War on America.
The leader of the group that planned those bombings was never punished.
He never apologized for his crimes.
He still says his only regret was that he didn’t kill more innocent people.
Instead he reinvented himself as a teacher, an author, a pillar of his community.
The kind of man who helps choose future leaders.
The leader of the group that planned to kill hundreds of young soldiers and their dates at Fort Dix in 1970 helped launch Barack Obama’s political career.
On November 4, Bill Ayers, an unrepentant criminal,
will vote for Barack Obama as President of the United States.
What about you?
