Jodie Foster's 'Ex' Set Free to Live With Mommy

John Hinckley Jr, who shot President Ronald Reagan in 1981 hoping to impress Jodie Foster, will be freed from a mental hospital to live full time in Virginia with his mother, the AP reports. Was surprised to overhear a group of editors of a certain age fuming about this in the newsroom today, calling a federal judge's decision to set the 61-year-old loon free "unprecedented. Yeah, it was unprecedented, unless you count Squeaky Fromme and Sara Jane Moore, who have both been out for years.

Somehow the first thing that popped into my mind was the "Ally McBeal" character who always said "Bygones!"

Jodie Foster must be thrilled

But didn't they just decide he was Jim Brady's killer?
