*It's difficult to explain and probably is not a
completely rational response. I felt sorry for a man
who died in prison, far from his family and all. I was
also watching some broadcasts of his trial just weeks
before he died and was struck by the fact that he an
intelligent and articulate man, although undoubtedly
neurotic, but maybe he could have had a better life in
different circumstances. I have difficulty seeing how
one can rejoice at someone's death.
