Remembering Paul Wellstone's 'Poverty Tour'

When he visited Appalachia in 1997, he impressed people in the mountains who were generally ignored. Wellstone retraced the steps Bobby Kennedy once took. . .
from 'Poverty Tour' Takes Wellstone to Kentucky

It's been 30 years since a senator from outside of the Appalachians came to Eastern Kentucky to listen to coal miners. And what Minnesota Democrat Paul Wellstone heard on a stop of his national "Poverty Tour" shocked him.
"I'm convinced that most people in this country--and I'm absolutely convinced that most people in Congress--think that what you're describing is something that took place 50 years ago," Wellstone told a group of eight miners and one young widow he met in Hazard, Ky. . .

Eric Rudolph? Eric Robert Rudolph, where are you? Picture from the FBI

One of the FBI's 10 Most Wanted, the man suspected of planting a bomb during the Atlanta Olympics in 1996 and at an Alabama abortion clinic in 1998, remains at large. National, state and local law enforcement canít find this homegrown English-speaking terrorist in an English-speaking land.

He was probably hiding within the boundaries of just a couple of counties in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

Guess who headed up the hunt for Rudolph for more than two years? The FBI man who now heads up the Department of Justice's Foreign Terrorist Tracking Task Force. As if you needed another reason to worry about the competence of intelligence agencies.

P.S. Much later--So they caught him--no thanks to the FBI!
