Let me repeat -- you have demonstrated that you are nothing less than
a psychotic murderer who lacks only the tools at his disposal to kill
billions of people. 

I wonder if I should inform the Federal Bureau of Investigation of
your public comments. Normally I hesitate to invoke such agencies, but
it seems to me that you are a menace to society and ought to be
carefully watched before you engage in some sort of monstrous act of
mass murder.
