Re: LUDD: ELF gets top billing with FBI

But note that ELF has "no members". I suppose that the front office is
manned by a random collection of sympathetic strangers, people who just
wandered by?

I've always wondered by what strategeries Sinn Fein mouthpieces kept out
of gaol. If they did. Anyone have a set of recommendations for reading
(no synoptic stuff, or multiples) about the Troubles from the
perspective of how that particular objective was accomplished?


PS: I've heard it said that, at its peak, active IRS membership at any
one time never numbered more than about 200--including all splinter
groups such as the Provos and the Real. Food for thought re ELF.
