NO TO MCVEIGH A U.S. federal judge rejected the appeal by Timothy McVeigh’s lawyers to stay the Oklahoma City bomber’s scheduled June 11 execution.

Murrah Federal Building that killed 168 people.

Cribs, stuffed animals and building blocks piled neatly against the walls are a pleasant reminder of the children these fathers have come to talk about.
