On Jan. 22, 1998, Ted Kaczynski pleaded guilty to multiple bombings popularly attributed to “the Unabomber.” The following day, an article in The Daily Herald of Chicago reported on his court appearance.
“In a deal that averted the spectacle of the government pushing to execute a mentally ill man, Theodore Kaczynski pleaded guilty to being the Unabomber on Thursday in return for a sentence of life in prison without parole.
“Kaczynski sat unflinching as a prosecutor recited in minute detail the horror of his 18-year reign of terror – bombs that killed three men and injured 29, including one who had his arm blown off.
“In a calm and forthright voice, Kaczynski confirmed he had written in his journal: ‘I would do it all over again.’ ”
