The notorious "Unabomber" a.k.a Ted Kaczynski has passed away at the age of 81. Ted was found in his jail cell from an apparent suicide this past weekend. Ted was most known as the "Unabomber." A domestic terrorist that terrorized the nation in the 80s and 90s as he sent his victims pipe bombs via the mail.

According to Wikipedia

In 1971, Kaczynski moved to a remote cabin without electricity or running water near Lincoln, Montana, where he lived as a recluse while learning survival skills to become self-sufficient. After witnessing the destruction of the wilderness surrounding his cabin, he concluded that living in nature was becoming impossible and resolved to fight industrialization and its destruction of nature through terrorism. In 1979, Kaczynski became the subject of what was, by the time of his arrest, the longest and most expensive investigation in the history of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Since his arrest in 1996 here in Montana, the town of Lincoln's reputation has been the unofficial "Home of the Unabomber." A reputation that the small town and the entire state of Montana do not want to have. Residents of Lincoln have said that visitors to the town always ask about Ted Kaczynski. They are fascinated with how this madman could escape into the nearby wilderness and live in a tiny cabin. While inflicting so much fear on an entire country. The people of Lincoln are tired of the reputation his actions brought.

I speak for many Montanans when I say "good riddance" to Ted K. Hopefully his passing will cause the public's memory of his time in this great state to fade. And the reputation of being a sanctuary for a madman will fade as well.
