My good friend Anne Leary of Backyard Conservative, a fabulous North Shore blogger, tipped me off to this picture, which I've heard rumors about, of Bill Ayers stepping on a US flag in 2001.
I believe it's from Chicago Magazine, and it accompanied an article in which Ayers was peddling his terrorist memoir, Fugitive Days.
At the time this photograph was taken, Obama and Ayers were serving together on the board of the Woods Fund. It was in 2001 when Ayers donated $200 to Obama's State Senate campaign fund.
"Guilty as sin, free as a bird, it's a great country" is one of the Ayers quotes in the top clipping.
Thanks for the links:

UPDATE 12:20 PM CDT: The Radio Patriot has a color picture of a slightly different photo of Ayers stepping on the flag.
