Sympathy for the Devil

By now many of you have seen the cover of Rolling Stone that has a glamour shot of the Boston Bomber.  I didn't read the article, but Greg Gutfeld has a brief synopsis.  WARNING: FOUL LANGUAGE AFTER THE LINK.

Usually there is a waiting period before evil people are glamorized.  Charles Manson didn't make it onto t-shirts until decades after his conviction.  It wasn't until a few years ago that I saw one of my students wearing a picture of mass murdering Commie Che Guevara.

But even before the trial has happened, this murderer is being sent love letters from pop culture elites.  

Could you imagine if they did a cover story about George Zimmerman with such a flattering picture?

No, I didn't think so.
