BOSTON, MA - WGBH intends broadcasting a holiday special starring former terrorist William Ayers. The special, described by one source as "like spending Christmas day being scolded by a scary man," initially seemed doomed. "The show was four hours long," said PBS spokesperson Tara Logan-Taylor. "And Professor Ayers wanted it shown without breaks." PBS balked, but at the last moment "it became financially possible, thanks to a grant from the Chubb Foundation." Filmed in Chicago, one Christmas party segment featured Ayers yelling through a megaphone at second graders for their "toy lust and greed when kids all over the world are being blown apart by a kill-crazed U.S. war machine." Another segment showed Ayers, dressed as Santa Claus, handing youngsters gifts from Cuba: rope sandals (all in Men's size 9) and a coloring book describing how to inform on your parents. "It's a bit preachy," admitted Taylor-Logan, "but we're hoping viewers hang around for the action stuff, like when the Professor dynamites a Burger King."
