Via the Great Beyond: “Marie Mason was sentenced last week to nearly 22 years in prison for a 1999 arson…for conspiring to set fire to the Michigan State University campus offices of the Agriculture Biotechnology Support Project, which promoted the use of genetically-modified crops in the developing world. Because the arson of the was motivated by anti-genetic modification ideologies, the sentencing judge followed ‘terrorism enhancement’ guidelines to set the sentence.” Which makes me wonder: will today’s militant greens one day be considered premature heroes, or misguided extremists?
