"my regular readers -- the four of you -- if I count all of my sisters"

:-) Up that number to five. Since discovering your blog a few weeks back, I've come to thoroughly enjoy it. Crime stories are always more interesting (and strange) when they're true!

Make that regular reader number 6. Like you, I love historical true crime and have read about the Clara Ford case. Your blog is a true joy.

I'm still here ;)

I like some of the political headlines especially when there are name plays. For example with Tony Blair, the headline was "Bliar". This became very well kown and used especially with the anti war lobby. Apparently it fits nicely onto a plackard.

Kevin Greenlee

Count me in a regular reader number eight.

Your readers might like a new true-crime book "Trail of Feathers" by Robert Rivard, editor of the San Antonio Express-News. Rivard joined the search for a missing reporter in Mexico, and found similarities of startling proportions between himself and his lost writer ... and a Mexican justice system that, to this day, has not imprisoned the confessed killers.

My own review appears at http://underthenews.blogspot.com.

I often think of Orwell's "1984" when faced with the barrage of 'political correctness' brought on by the myriad of special interest groups that arose like a tidal wave of thought police in the 80's. It's not that I'm against the increase of awareness and sensitivity towards others and the rise in social consciousness of our society as a whole; I just think the the pendulum has swung too far in that direction. Besides all of that: IT'S QUITE BORING!!!

I know this is an old post, but I came across an interesting headline today, from the Ottawa Citizen:

COPS PROBE CRACKDOWN - EGGMAN BEATEN AT PROTEST

Laura

Another gem -- from the Fox News front page --
QUITE AN IMPRESSIVE BUST
Feds say sharp-eyed dancers helped catch alleged counterfeiter trying to pass off phony $100 bills at strip club....
