ABCNews: Gee, Sorry We Reported James E. Holmes Was a Tea Partier Without Having Confirmed It

Time to bring back public drawing and quartering [Fritzworth]

I'm not a big proponent of the death penalty, particularly in light of the steady trickle of years-after-the-fact conviction reversals due to better processing of DNA evidence. But I'm willing to make key exceptions.

The bastard, the young punk who shot up the Aurora theater filled with adults, teens, and kids is one.

This strikes close to home, literally. My wife and I live in Parker, which immediately south of Aurora. The theater complex in which we see 90%+ of our movies is actually in Aurora, though it's a different complex than where the vicious attack occurred. And, yes, we've gone to midnight showings.

I'm currently on the road, though on my way home -- I'm writing this from the Admiral's Club in the D terminal at DFW Airport. Knowing our movie habits, one of our daughters called me from California just to be sure we were safe; my wife's brother, for the same reason, caller her at 7 am this morning. I've texted another daughter who actually lives in Aurora and who, like me, is an avid movie-goer and may well have gone to a midnight showing of Batman last night. I still haven't heard back from her, and I hate the fact that she could well have been there and that perhaps she was, and that I just don't know.

[UPDATE (1215 ET): She's fine. Finally heard back from her while waiting to board my plane. But she's worried about some friends that she hasn't heard back from yet.]

My wife told me on the phone a while ago that the shooter didn't kill hiimself, didn't do suicide-by-cop, but simply surrendered. He clearly wants to live to enjoy the notoriety, the platform he will have for weeks and months and years to come.

Fine. Give it to him. I won't say that hanging's too good for him; I'll say instead that hanging is just the start. ..fritz..
