This is Normal?

The husband of Amy Bishop told the Associated Press during an interview at his home Monday, "She was just a normal professor." Is that right?

This fine example of normalcy methodically shot her victims in the head until her gun jammed.

Little old normal Amy Bishop had previously been accused of killing her 18-year-old brother with a shotgun at their suburban Boston home in 1986.

Chief Paul Frazier said Bishop also fired once into a wall before hitting her brother, then fired a third time into the ceiling. A "normal" person having a "normal" accident?

An auto mechanic who worked at a dealership near Bishop's home in 1986 told the Boston Herald and The Boston Globe that Bishop ran in after shooting her brother, waved a gun and demanded a getaway car. Just another "normal" day in the life of a "normal" girl.

In 1993, Bishop and her husband, James Anderson, were questioned by investigators looking into a pipe bomb sent to one of Bishop's colleagues, Dr. Paul Rosenberg, at Children's Hospital Boston. Just another "normal" incident when you're married to a "normal" professor.

It sure sounds like James Anderson is just your "normal" husband of your "normal" psychotic, mass murderer.

UPDATE: In 2002 Amy Bishop as a "normal" mom
walked into an International House of Pancakes with her family, asked for a booster seat for one of her children, and learned the last seat had gone to another mother.

Bishop, according to a police report, strode over to the other woman, demanded the seat and launched into a profanity-laced rant.

When the woman would not give the seat up, Bishop punched her in the head, all the while yelling "I am Dr. Amy Bishop."
