Redeeming Social Value

by PG

Various reviews of Mel Gibson's movie The Passion made me decide that it wasn't for me. But now I have to be glad that it's out there; the Houston Chronicle reports:

Detectives say the death of a 19-year-old woman originally ruled a suicide has turned into a murder case after a repentant man who'd watched The Passion of the Christ confessed to killing her because she was carrying his child.
Dan R. Leach supposedly wished to seek redemption. However, having committed pre-meditated homicide -- Murder One -- and admitted it (leaving himself without the negotiating tool of pleading guilty to avoid trial), Leach is likely to find himself on death row.
