Given that Earth Day is basically a media festival, it’s always mysterious to me that so little press attention is given to the guy who started it, Ira Einhorn:
Environmentalist Loved Planet, Murdered Girlfriend
And I always forget this part:
Arlen Specter, currently Pennsylvania’s senior United States Senator, was Mr. Einhorn’s attorney. He managed to get the bail set at the unheard of amount of $40,000 for the suspected murderer. Only 10 percent was needed to free him. Barbara Bronfman, heiress to the Seagram liquor fortune, paid it.
