Tom Varney of the Secret Service then told the judge that he believed
Cummings to be a major threat to society and that he was concerned
because of the upcoming presidential campaign. It was unclear if he
was actually implying that Cummings would somehow be a threat to the
president but the judge and the police listened intently.

Varney continued to describe the threatening items that had been found
in Cummings' residence: a copy of The Anarchist's Cookbook, publications
from Loompanix, a mag stripe read head (no electronics) which "could have
been used" to commit fraud, and material thought to be C4 but later
proven not to be. However, Varney said, the fact that it could have been
showed how serious this was. Nobody questioned his logic.
Wow, I'd better throw out my copy of "The Anarchist's Cookbook", eh?.
Oh wait: it would be more fitting if I blew it up.
