Would You Like Lithium On Your Popcorn, Sir?

A federal judge has granted presidential assailant and certified wacko John Hinckley overnight stays with his parents in Williamsburg, Virginia. Hinckley has been in a DC mental hospital ever since he shot President Reagan and three others in 1981. In recent years Hinckley has been allowed to leave the hospital grounds for shorter excursions with his mother and father. Then last year he was granted overnight visits within a 50 mile radius of DC. Williamsburg, however, is about 150 miles away, so this is a major step for him.

Well, that's nice. Maybe now he'll have a chance to catch up on all those Jodie Foster movies he's missed over the last 24 years.
