I remember the D.C. snipers oh so well.  I remember the snipers reeking havoc on the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area for what seemed like an eternity.  People everywhere in the area were running out of gas from fear of running out of gas.  I could go on and on, but all I can say is I am glad that season is over.
