Dear Sir:

The Mad Bomber, Ted Kaczynski, lived in a decrepit cabin in Montana. During his trial, the government seized it and hauled it to Sacramento. Whatever happened to it? Rumor has it that it will be used as Clinton's summer White House.

-- Berny Baker, San Diego

It was actually Ted's lawyers who moved his cozy, bomb-and-paper-filled home of 25 years, planning to submit it as evidence in a "cabin fever" defense. They hoisted Ted's 13-by-13 shack onto a flatbed, flipped it on its side, covered it with a tarp, and schlepped it 1100 miles to Mather Field, a former Air Force base outside Sacramento. About the time they were forklifting the thing into a warehouse, Ted copped a plea. According to the U.S. District Court, the cabin is still in the warehouse but will become the property of Kaczynski's family when the judge releases it. Then they can do anything they want with it. Vegas has "burn it" at 10 to 1.
