Hamlet's Defense

The defence team in the Moussaoui trial sound an awful lot like the Bard in his play Hamlet.
From foxnews:
Defense lawyers hope the jury will spare Moussaoui's life because of his limited role in the attacks, evidence of mental illness and because they say his execution would only fuel his dream of martyrdom.

To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream:
ay, there's the rub;For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: there's the respect
That makes calamity of so long life;

In my opinion, let's help him shuffle off his coil and he can have all the dreams he wants.
