... only presumably with fewer characters being buggered to death by Mr. Hyde. What the fuck, Alan. This, this is why we can't have nice things.

In fairness, I'd be up for a little murder too if my name was Elphaba Thropp and I couldn't find a sympathetic judge.

Maybe they're confusing him with the Jackal from Frederick Forsyth's The Day of the Jackal. Who is not Carlos the Jackal, and who is actually rather scary until the end of the book. (Amusingly, I am told Carlos ended up being "the Jackal" because the cops found a copy of The Day of the Jackal in his apartment when they raided it one day while he was out.)

>Is a real person, I guess.

Yes, astonishingly enough, he's still alive, in a prison somewhere. He somehow managed not to get killed by the cops or the other terrorists.

Well, don't get me wrong, there's plenty of killin', but on Cross's part it's mostly of the Freeman's Mind "If you guys would stop shooting at me I wouldn't have to keep killing you! Give peace a chance! Or at least stand still!" variety.
