— NPR's John McChesney reports that the prosecution in the Unabomber case has filed a motion that the defense should conduct the case as defendant Ted Kaczynski wants— without an insanity defense. Otherwise, says the prosecution, his attorneys should be held in comtempt of court. Kaczynski wants to represent himself, after the judge denied his request to work with a lawyer who will not suggest he was mentally ill.
