Instant Karma, or: Death By Spite

Below: Paul Weyrich, not long before his death.
Eventual karma, if not instant, but what's a head-line for?
The cause of death was not immediately known, but Weyrich had faced a number of medical crises over the last dozen years, including diabetes and the amputation of both legs in 2005. [...] In 2001 he was roundly attacked from the right and left for writing in an Easter letter to supporters that "Christ was crucified by the Jews." One critic, a writer for a conservative publication, called him a "demented anti-Semite." Weyrich said his comment was misconstrued and he apologized.
We're absolutely certain that his statement was entirely out of context. That's why he was able to clarify it rather than apologize. Huh? Read it again?
