“Very friendly … hippie types,” is how the neighbors described the Greenwich Village couple. They had lived in the apartment for 5 years and, though keeping it a tad messy, were not especially bad neighbors. Referring to the woman, a neighbor said “She’s always very friendly, very nice. She looks like she’s eight months pregnant. He’s kind of cold, not the type of person who encouraged politeness. He never said a word to me.” Cops were to find in their apartment a supply of high-powered explosives, sawed-off shotgun, and also a “Terrorist Encyclopedia” printout.

Specifically, the sawed-off shotgun was a customized 12-gauge Mossberg 500, with nine high-capacity rifle magazines, a flare launcher, and a stash of Hexamethylene Triperoxide Diamine, HMTD, a volatile explosive used by previous terrorists. They also had various printouts about making booby-traps, alongside the terrorist printout which looks a little like an abbreviation of the Anarchists Cookbook.

It may strike many as peculiar that the woman, Morgan Gliedman, a 27-year who attended The Dalton School and who received an MFA in creative writing at the Art Institute of Chicago, and the man, Aaron Greene, 31, who The Post Reports “attended Harvard as an undergraduate and did his graduate work at the university’s Kennedy School of Government,” should have come to this.

“I’m not that surprised,” a neighbor said. “Every time this happens they interview the dumb neighbors and they always say, ‘Oh, I would have never thought they could do this!’ But everyone who lives in the village will tell you about the bomb explosion [an accidental explosion at the Weathermen’s bomb factory in 1970]. It’s crazy that this happened, but anything can happen. Nothing surprises me anymore.”

Jaded words, perhaps, but characteristic of many nowadays. It was a peculiar twist, nevertheless, when Morgan went into labor shortly after her arrest.
