A serial killer is caught, but takes his own life before revealing his list of victims:
"'Why don't you give us another name?' asked Russo, a federal prosecutor.
Keyes was conflicted — he wanted his story out there, but worried about the impact it would have on friends and family (he has a daughter believed to be 10 or 11), says Goeden, the FBI agent. He rebuffed all appeals to bring peace to others.
"'Think about your loved ones,' Doll urged. 'Wouldn't you want to know if they're never coming home?'
"He mulled it over and returned another day with his answer.

"If Karl Rove was Bush's brain, then [Eric] Fehrnstrom is Romney's balls." Meet the former Boston Herald reporter-turned-consigliere to the presidential candidate:
"It was January of 2008, the last time Romney ran for president, and Fehrnstrom was getting in the face of an Associated Press reporter in a Staples store in South Carolina. The reporter, Glen Johnson, had just challenged Romney during a press conference, interrupting him in the middle of a claim that he didn't have lobbyists working on his campaign—Mitt definitely did—and when the press conference was over, Romney rushed after Johnson to press his case. 'Listen to my words, all right? Listen to my words,' Romney sputtered, smiling through gritted teeth. That's when Fehrnstrom stepped in and cornered Johnson in front of a Post-it notes display. 'You should act a little bit more professionally instead of being argumentative with the candidate,' he hissed at Johnson. 'It's out of line. You're out of line.'"

From the time he was young boy, Mark Hawthorne understood the power of words. His father was a reporter for the Associated Press and his mother was a school teacher. So when Hawthorne landed his dream job and became a reporter for The New York Times, everything seemed to fall into place. Except that it all fell apart. These days, Hawthorne uses the power of words in a different way. Mostly, it's to say, "fuck you" or "I hate you." For the past 25 years, Hawthorne has lived on the streets of Berkeley, where he's developed a following and is known by the moniker "Hate Man."
