*A note to the feds involved in this case: This is an American artist charged under the "Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act"! Think of the judgment of history, people! You'll be pathetic footnotes in the history of McCarthyite lunacy!
Why do people insist on invoking McCarthy in such a way that hurts their case? McCarthy was, we know, right about the Soviet and communist infiltration of the government. Calling this "McCarthyite" tells me that maybe this guy was doing something wrong, as many of those investigated by McCarthy had.
