I don't really understand how him admiting to killing more people, would get him out of the death penalty. That's like saying, "we were going to kill you, but since you admit to killing more people, we'll spare your life".
As part of the deal, Rudolph confessed to the 1996 bombing of the Summer Olympics in Atlanta and subsequent blasts at an abortion clinic and gay bar in and around the Georgia capital.

Perhaps I should have found a peaceful outlet for my opposition to the government in Washington: maybe I should have been a lawyer and fought (for) decency in the face of this rotten system; perhaps I could have taken up teaching and sought to inculcate a healthy outlook in a decidedly unhealthy society," he writes.

Many good people continue to send me money and books," Rudolph writes in an undated letter. "Most of them have, of course, an agenda; mostly born-again Christians looking to save my soul. I suppose the assumption is made that because I'm in here I must be a 'sinner' in need of salvation, and they would be glad to sell me a ticket to heaven, hawking this salvation like peanuts at a ballgame. I do appreciate their charity, but I could really do without the condescension. They have been so nice I would hate to break it to them that I really prefer Nietzsche to the Bible.
