Sniper John Allen Muhammad was reported to the FBI in Seattle as a possible terrorist by locals last fall. He was homeless but had a travel agent, a rifle and a roll of cash. He avoided FBI scrutiny by staying out of New Jersey politics.

Robert Blake agreed Monday to give an on-camera jailhouse interview to Diane Sawyer, prompting his lawyer to resign. The defendant doesn't need him. Under California law, if you do not have a publicist, the court will appoint one for you.
