FBI agent relating the story of an interrogation:

"... So, I re-cuffed him with his hands in front, looked him right in the
eye, and then I _told_ him: "*Is* she okay?" And he answered, "No, because
I killed her."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
