    My Episode on Roberta Glass Show 

    Yes, back again. Re-post alert.

    I messed up one of the Armenian brothers first names, but I stand by this 100%. So much more to come… stay tuned. There has been discussion in the past at this blog about all the audio clips Roberta acefully includes, use the “Search” block if you care about more detail for those things.

    Two YouTubers I Love… 

    BTW, the Dearly Departed Helter Skelter Tour is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Thanks G~♡

    more of Cynthia’s channel….

    (I know it, posting vids is a cop out. Tomorrow though you get nearly an entire free chapter of my badass Wonderland book. If I can just get pdf makers to work)

    I love you all.

    P.J.’s Has Cheek & Jowl… 

    Early 70s, P. J.s article. Kind of a re-post, but I did more research.

    Sounds like the Altra Three was similar to the stage acrobats from this 1907 show’s playbill.. lots of oohs and ahhs, but nobody screws up, they just make the audience nervous.

    If this is the same Jewel Brown, count me in! How can we forget all the special folks Eddie brushed elbows with… when we didn’t know. And, poor Bobby Wicks.

    Don’t Worry, It’s Not Our Jess 

    The other one is still alive. However, the real Jess #1 did try to sue a long time ago for using his nom d’plume. Not sure of the outcome.

    A Detective On The Case 

    By Sidonie Sturrock, Houston History Magazine. VOL 2. No. 12

    “How does an entire neighborhood simply vanish from the historical record? What about the people who lived there?”

    Posted with the hope that this hidden gem of an article will tickle your heavy sense of nostaligia. Is it vanity or greed that makes us want and need our past places and homes to be remembered? Or, is nostalgia simply emotional greed, the build up of regrets and longing for… the good ole days? A chance to do-over the things where we once failed.

    (The large photograph of the local bicycle club is worth a click)

    John List: I’m Not Into Kinky S*x 

    Let’s make one thing clear:

    Family annihilator John List sets the record straight. He may have been a horrid, stomach-churning devil, the worst of the worst type of murderer… unconscionable, unfathomable… and then there are those eyeglasses and the overall snooty look… just a nightmare through and through. However, let’s get one thing straight! —

    And what types of parties were these? If someone was there steering the conversation, who is worse? Them or him. I don’t know how the topic had arisen, but let’s change the subject, please. This was before Xerox Corp. had sexual harassment training for employees, one can be certain. My apologies if this is TMI for you, but I had to share this awful feeling, and the frightening images which I cannot erase.

    Excerpt from the well researched and page-turning true crime book, “Righteous Carnage“:

    Remembering Nicole (Jeffrey MacDonald Case) 

    Nicole was a true crime buff who often called in and conversed with Roberta Glass on her show. Since Nicole was a case expert for many trials, today we honor her passing with a video from one of her guest spots on Roberta’s show, lending her expertise to the Jeffrey MacDonald case discussion (and the Four Intruders). Damn hippies.

    RIP Nicole. You will be missed.
