May each of you have the heart to conceive, the understanding to direct, and the hand to execute works that will leave the world a little better for your having been here. -- Ronald Reagan

DC Sniper to be Executed Tonight

Tonight "Beltway Sniper" John Allen Muhammad will meet Justice and be executed. Defense attorney Jon Sheldon doesn't think he's such a bad guy, saying: "I perfectly understand the families of the victims want to throttle him. It is hard to get a handle on the amount of damage he has done." "John Allen Muhammad is absolutely responsible. He's guilty. But there are glimpses of him being thoughtful. People don't want to see that. It's much easier to wrap him up into the thing he did."

Perhaps the families of the murdered don't think John Allen Muhammad all that thoughtful. One can certainly say John Sheldon isn't such a thoughtful person.

Our prayers for the families of the murdered: Claudine Parker, James Martin, James “Sonny” Buchanan, Premkumar Walekar, Sarah Ramos, Lori Ann Lewis-Rivera, Pascal Charlot, Dean Harold Meyers, Kenneth Bridges, Linda Franklin, and Conrad Johnson.
