Bill Ayers may have been a radical leftist "domestic terrorist" back in the day, but it doesn't mean he's above making a buck now. Beacon Press in Boston plans to release a new edition of Ayers's 2001 memoir, Fugitive Days, on November 12. It will include a new afterword but apparently will not mention Barack Obama. The project comes months early. "Given the recent interest in Mr. Ayers because of the election, we decided to move the release up," Beacon Publicity Director Pamela MacColl tells Whispers. "Mr. Ayers, however, did not want the new edition released until after the election, and we have respected those wishes."
