Rough Cut: David Kaczynski on His Brother - The Unabomber

A man named David Kaczynski lives in upstate New York, where he is the Executive Director of New Yorkers Against the Death Penalty. David is the younger brother of Theodore Kaczynski: The Unabomber, who is now in prison for running what amounts to a terrorist by mail campaign. From 1978 to 1995, Theodore Kaczynski mailed 16 bombs that killed three people and injured 23. He was identified and arrested largely because his brother David had begun to suspect that he was the Unabomber, and contacted authorities.

For the first time, David Kaczysnki has written about his relationship with the brother he grew up with and admired. It appears in a new collection called BROTHERS: 26 STORIES OF LOVE AND RIVALRY. Here is an excerpt from my interview with him this Saturday:
