Oh look, another story about an destructive, unrepentant, society destroying sociopath. Great, just wonderful and inspiring ((heavy hearted sarcasm sigh sound)).

Only can see this as yet another cautionary tale. These stories are becoming all too common... maybe it's time to do a story about that? How Meta, I know, but very relevant.
