Marked by his middle name

    For John Mark Karr life sucks. The sad son of a bitch has been doomed since the media hung his middle name out in public and created that creepy public identity that goes with guys with three names: Lee Harvey Oswald, Mark David Chapman, John Wilkes Booth… (John Hinckley and Arthur Bremer missed the triple appellation because their victims survived, I think).

    It will be interesting to see how much bandwidth “John Mark Karr” sucks up for “George What-a-fucking-idiot Bush” between now and November.

      he’s an asshole alright, but “Mark” my words: he didn’t do it.

      I like your suggestion that this round-two media circus may be Wag the Dog redux. probably all too true. I’m ready to believe anything. As Bono said: I’m ready for the laughing gas.
