  1. Two things:
    1) I honestly thought you were talking about DD for a minute there with the murderer comment. Considering he got his start as a writer talking about the trial of the man who killed his daughter, I had some serious congnitive dissonance. 🙂
    2) Don’t forget that Teddy was also a longtime contributor to NORAID making him a terrorist supporter as well. According to an article in GQ, he would appear to be a serial sexual assaulter as well.
