It wasn't from an anti-vivisection group. It was from a single individual
who was actively bombing in the seventies and early eighties, but has
since laid low (or become latent, as us virologists say :) ). Its not
clear what caused him to reactivate.

There doesn't seem to be any link among the targets, other than that they
are college professors.
