12 of 15: Gore Vidal is shown in the Feb. 15, 1993 photo. Novelist Gore Vidal plans to attend the execution of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, a man with whom he shares some views about the federal government. Vidal, whose works include ``Burr,'' ``Lincoln'' and ``The Last Empire,'' said he began corresponding with McVeigh when the bomber wrote him about Vidal's 1998 article in Vanity Fair on ``the shredding'' of the Bill of Rights.
