FALLING HALE: One of America's

FALLING HALE: One of America's foremost dirtbags is finally behind bars, and for that we should all be thankful. Matt Hale, leader of a white-supremecist cult called the World Church of the Creator, was arrested earlier this week for attempting to have a judge killed; U.S. District Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow had been scheduled to preside over Hale's trial in a copyright-infringement case. In 1999, a follower of Hale's went on a shooting rampage in Indiana and in Chicago's West Rogers Park neighborhood, killing (among others) former Northwestern University basketball coach Ricky Byrdsong.
