In early September 2001, after a standoff with local authorities, government sharpshooters killed two men at a Michigan campground that offered a haven for alternative lifestyles. The incident at Rainbow Farm was driven from the headlines by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, but the story has parallels to Ruby Ridge and Waco. It's revisited in the October edition of Playboy magazine. Hear NPR's Scott Simon and reporter Dean Kuipers.
