A hero died yesterday

(Hat tip to Captain's Quarters) Richard Jewell died yesterday, probably due to complications from diabetes.

IMHO, the FBI agent and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter(s) who leaked that he was a suspect should be given a fair trial for murder and then hanged. Jewell put himself in harm's way for hundreds of people and saved all but one of them. Because he was a "bubba" who lived with his mother, he had to be a psychopath who did the bombing. Some FBI agent had to be Deep Throat, and some Atlanta reporter had to be Woodward.

Richard Jewell didn't deserve what he got for his troubles.
