Another Osawatomie coincidence?

Earlier today, Don and I kicked around whether there might be veiled symbolism sent by President Obama in choosing Osawatomie, Kansas as a place to deliver an address.

Was Mr. Obama just trying to ride Teddy Roosevelt's progressive coattails or was there more to his choice of venue?

Over at, they've come up with another interesting tie to the name Osawatomie.

During the president's address, the high school audience snickered when Mr. Obama referenced "Communist" and "Socialist." It seemed to be the reaction the president was seeking.

I wonder if the students know their town was the namesake for the Weather Underground newspaper. Do they even know what the Weather Underground was?
