Know Your Terrorist
By: Steven Heller | July 16, 2008
Back in the good ole days (1986 to be precise), before anyone had ever heard of Al-Qaeda القاعدة, and back when all we had to fear was the Evil Empire and assorted thugs and demigods, it was easy to know who the terrorists were, thanks to bubble gum cards.
From the Daily Heller Vaults (a new occassional feature) comes TERRORIST ATTACK: America Figthts Back (distributed by Piedmont Candy Co. in Detroit, Michigan). In fact, this 1980s-era answer to Davey Crockett cards was considered so essential to national security that the producers didn’t even include bubble gum (why make terrorism sweet?).
