Meet Daniel Andreas San Diego. Why is Danny boy in the news?
Daniel Andreas San Diego grew up in a safe and quiet suburb of San Francisco, the son of a city manager in California's affluent Marin County. Now 30, he swore off drugs and drink as a young man — and even milk and meat — but the straight-edge San Diego was no straight shooter.
"He looks like a personable young man," says David Strange, the FBI agent who's been following San Diego's case for five years. But San Diego's bespectacled face masks a violent hate that authorities say turned him into an eco-terrorist, a vicious vegan with an ax to grind.
Before dawn on Aug. 28, 2003, two homemade pipe bombs went off at the headquarters of Chiron Corporation, a biotechnology firm based in Emeryville, Calif. The second blast was time-delayed; the FBI suspects that may have been a tactic to harm emergency teams responding to the blast.
Let's assume that he can evade the FBI for the next two months and is able to cast a provisional ballot in some ACORN neighborhood.
Will he vote for Barack Obama or John McCain?
