Even now, as he stands in the caged-in dock with his head shaven and his hideous crimes confessed, there is something innocuous about Andrei Chikatilo, something of the harmless, bespectacled schoolteacher. If he struck up a conversation with you in a suburban station, then invited you home for a quick snack before the next bus--and if you were young and bored and naive. . . . Who knows? You might go. But you would never get there.

Russia has executed serial killer Andrei Chikatilo, convicted of 52 murders in three former Soviet republics during a 12-year rampage, the Interfax news agency said in Moscow. Chikatilo, known as the "Rostov Ripper," was shot in the southern region of Rostov-on-Don after President Boris N. Yeltsin rejected an appeal for clemency, the agency said. The former teacher was found guilty of raping and murdering 21 boys, 14 girls and 17 older women in Russia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan starting in 1978.

A man dubbed the "Rostov Ripper" after an orgy of killings was found guilty Wednesday of 52 murders in southern Russia. Andrei Chikatilo, 57, his head shaven and eyes bulging, sat in a special white metal cage in the courtroom as the judge began reading a 330-page verdict. Judge Leonid Akubzhanov ruled that Chikatilo, who had raped and killed boys, girls and young women and escaped police detection since 1978, was sane. He seemed likely to face the death penalty when sentenced, probably today.

Let's get real. We have to pay more taxes in order to get out of the economic mess that the politicians have gotten us into. Perot is a very successful patriotic businessman. If he didn't care about our future, why would he put so much of his own money into his campaign? If he can make billions for himself, why not for America? FRAN O'BRIEN Westminster
