(Author’s note: This is an article I wrote seven years ago. With the news of Harvey Updyke’s death, I hope I am keeping my promise below.)
Six months of prison, about half of which has already been served, with a laughable probation after that. And when he gets out, he’ll be a hero to thousands, if not millions, for the rest of his pathetic life.
Upon first reflecting on this, I figured that if Hell didn’t exist already, God would have to create it for a situation like Harvey Updyke.
I went to A-Day, but I was not able to attend the “One Last Roll” that evening.
