A 1960's radical often linked by Republicans to Barack Obama, won't be speaking at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln next month. Bill Ayers, now a college professor in Chicago, was scheduled to speak November 15 at an education conference.
But Chancellor Harvey Perlman canceled the appearance. Perlman says he knows of no specific threat to harm Ayers, but the school determined some complaints constituted a safety threat.
Ayers helped found the Vietnam-era radical group the Weathermen, which carried out bombings at the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol.
