The Night Stalker Is Dead

    Richard Ramirez terrorized the Southland and terrified 13-year-old me that summer because he'd pop up in random places night after night killing people. The Sunday morning L.A. news stations cut into whatever I was watching for the breaking news that he was captured was one of the happiest days of my life.

    He killed 13 people that we know of.

    Perhaps the only criminal who made me worried about my safety.

    I was scared every night that he'd show up in Long Beach, in my neighborhood, crawl thru my window and kill me.

    The guy who finally shanked him probably gets free cigarettes for life.

    Or at least gets to pitch whenever he wants.

    Always found Richard Ramirez to be a fascinating individual. Serial killers are my weird obsession. They're the most interesting people in the world, bar none.

    Good. Just too bad it wasn't hooked up to a needle or standing in front of a firing squad.

    I thought this was going to be about Darren McGavin.

    Then you are a loser.

    ETA; I hope he had a painful death, maybe stomache cancer and was given crappy pain killers. With any kind of luck his days were filled with pain and misery and he was unable to find solace or joy in anything.

    He made me nervous because he was killing people in areas where my family lived. I was overseas in the military at the time.

    I was happy when he was caught. Grateful now that he's gone.

    Same for myself and my siblings -- and we were 60 miles to the east.

    He scared the shit out of me back then ... and I lived in Wisconsin.
