    To: John Hinckley
    From: Mrs. Nancy Reagan

    My family and I wanted to drop you a short note to tell you how pleased we are with the great strides you are making in your recovery. In our fine country's spirit of understanding and forgiveness, we want you to know there is a nonpartisan consensus of compassion and forgiveness throughout.

    The Reagan family and I want you to know that no grudge is borne against you for shooting President Reagan. We, above all, are aware of how the mental stress and pain could have driven you to such an act of desperation. We are confident that you will soon make a complete recovery and return to your family to join the world again as a healthy and productive young man.

    Best wishes,
    Nancy Reagan & Family

    P.S. While you have been incarcerated, Barack Obama has been banging Jodie Foster like a screen door in a tornado. You might want to look into that.

    That should have read "while you have been away, President Obama has been boning Jodie Foster like he owned it."

    Squeaky Fromme's projected release date is Aug. 16, 2009. Maybe somebody can give her a road map to Crawford, Texas!!

    Kind of funny - until you realize that Reagan actually wanted to personally forgive Hinkley for shooting him in 1982, but Hinkley's doctor's nixed it because Hinkley was still grasping the concept of taking responsibility for his actions.
    But hell, why not make the Reagan family look bad when you have the chance.

    John Hinckley should have been executed for attempting to kill the doddering old fool, as should Squeaky Fromme and Sara Jane Moore for taking shots at Leather-Helmet Ford.

    It ought to be pretty much automatic: make a serious attempt to kill the prez, you get the needle.

    It wouldn't stop some (maybe most) of them, but it might stop some.
  7. It wouldn't stop any of them. They are all Nucking Futs!
    I agree with your thoughts: the death penalty should automatic.
    No needle. Swing 'em.

    Dear John Hinckley,

    Jodie Foster doesn't play for your team.
