I suspect that some people want to know what they look like so that they can be on the look out for them (those that live near the crime scene). Others I feel are looking to have some tightly held belief validated.
    Nail on the head...

    How many here will be honest and say they were hoping that it was an Arab?
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Some don't even have to, it was so apparent.

    Bedell, who lived with his parents, may have harbored resentment to the military and had doubts about the facts behind the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the Associated Press reports.

    Keevill says authorities are looking into a series of Internet postings by a user identified as "JPatrickBedell."

    "That's one of many things we are looking into," Keevil said during Friday's 6 a.m. news conference.

    In the Internet posts, JPatrickBedell rants about marijuana laws and included links to his court case in Orange County, Calif., for cultivating marijuana and resisting a police officer.
    You can't make this stuff up. :D

    I'm amazed he had the attention span to drive all the way to Washington.

    I went back and re-read everything but I must have missed the "apparent" section. I figured it was a washed up actress who made exercise videos in the '80s or a fat slob of a director who insulted Charlton Heston.

    Not apparent to me at all. I immediately thought of a whacked out liberal hoping it wasn't a right wing nut.
