Weird coincidence just now. I had turned on the radio, looking for a weather update, and got NPR's story-telling program "Snap Judgment"--almost immediately, I heard a voice that sounded distantly familiar, something about the cadence, the word choice. The story she was telling began in a social services office in Oregon, meeting a man, love at first sight. Nothing I could recognize--until suddenly, she said "I told him 'I have to tell you something. I'm a fugitive.'"
--It's Kathy Power! And so it was. My most infamous Brandeis classmate, stage manager for the Gilbert and Sullivan Society, close friend of a casual friend of mine--and member of the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List!
All that came out in her story, a brief, factual account of how she became a guerilla warrior while working on the Student Strike, the bank robbery where the police officer was shot, and where she was the getaway car driver, her 23 years on the run, her surrender to the FBI. She didn't talk much about the prison time, which she covers in a 2013 memoir.
