I can relate. In 1971 I needed a secret clearance and told
them, "On two occasions I have had roommates who were
convicted of attempting to firebomb military buildings."
The lady said, "Oh my," but I got my clearance anyways.
Since my job was technical a question might be how did I
come to live with guys who were such putzes that they
couldn't successfully firebomb a building.
