As expected, Robert Chain, 68, of Encino, CA, pleaded guilty today to federal charges related to the more than one dozen phone calls he made to the Boston Globe threatening to shoot Globe employees in the head.
US District Court Judge William Young scheduled sentencing for Sept. 23, the US Attorney's office in Boston reports.
Chain had earlier agreed to plead guilty to being an asshole who decided mass murder was the appropriate answer to the Globe's efforts last year to organize a national series of editorials about how the press was not the enemy of the people. As a convicted felon, he will have to give up all his guns.
