September 18, 1975, after crisscrossing the country with her captors–
or conspirators–for more than a year, Patty Hearst, or “Tania,” as
she called herself, was captured in a San Francisco apartment and
arrested for armed robbery. Despite her later claim that she had
been brainwashed by the SLA, she was convicted on March 20, 1976,
and sentenced to seven years in prison. Her prison sentence was commuted by President
Jimmy Carter and she was released in
February 1979. She later married her bodyguard. In 2001, she
received a full pardon from President
Bill Clinton.

Charles Krauthammer (March 13, 1950 – June 21, 2018)

Charles Krauthammer, a longtime Fox News contributor, Pulitzer
Prize winner, Harvard-trained psychiatrist and best-selling author
who came to be known as the dean of conservative commentators,
died today.

In August 2017, Krauthammer had a cancerous tumor removed from
his abdomen. The surgery was thought to have been successful;
however, on June 8, 2018, Krauthammer announced that his cancer
had returned and that doctors had given him only weeks to live.
 


While in his first year studying at Harvard Medical School, Charles
Krauthammer became permanently paralyzed from the neck down
after a diving board accident that severed his spinal cord. After 
spending 14 months recovering in a hospital, he returned to the
medical school, graduating as a psychiatrist.
