Death and Karma

Yesterday was a sad day. 
It was the anniversary of the disaster at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, and the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. 
The memory of these terrible events was overshadowed by news that two killers, Steve Stephens - the so-called Facebook killer - and Aaron Hernandez - the NFL star convicted of murder - had both committed suicide, and that Bill O'Reilly had been dumped by Fox News.
It is an interesting quirk of our judicial system that Hernandez may now have his conviction overturned, since he died before exhausting all of his appeals.
O'Reilly, on the other hand, was never convicted (or even charged) with anything, and continues to maintain his innocence.  In today's political climate, I doubt that even suicide would get him off the hook.
