In this diavlog I said that William Ayers' father, Thomas Ayers, was a "big rich lawyer." While Thomas Ayers was a pillar of the Chicago establishment (he served as CEO of Commonwealth Edison), which may have helped his son's wife Bernardine Dohrn get a job at a big rich law firm, Thomas Ayers does not seem to have been a lawyer himself. I regret talking so sloppily, especially during moose-deployment. ... Here is a Michael Barone article explaining the situation, and arguing that in Chicago geneology is indeed more important than in other towns.
