      famous and die as martyrs. But then again, Klebold and Harris wanted the same thing and got it..these brothers actually remind me more of the Columbine kids than the 9-11 terrorists.

        You're right about Harris. He believed he was truly special and fantasized about inflicting catastrophe having books written about him. His school-mates said he seemed nice and well-adjusted. If he were a true psychopath like Harris (and I don't think there's any evidence for this yet) he would be able to maintain a deceptively charming exterior and his sadistic side would only be known by those closest to him if to anyone at all. Wondering if we'll find any journals.
