I’ll go in order of who was hurt most. Cari Farver is first because she was murdered then dragged through the mud for years by the perpetrator. Then there is Mr. Kroupa, second. After that I lose count and it is unfair to try and rank and order them; they include Nancy the mother, Max […]
I looked at this blog a few days ago and said to myself, I have to stop writing about these Dateline and true crime stories that grab my attention. I’d rather do my own investigating instead of rehashing things on discussion forums everywhere. Besides, I’d rather write my own story. This is it. Have you […]
I study writing here and this is something that makes every word count. That is why it is reprinted here without permission. I need to reread it before commenting further. When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that […]
https://www.wired.com/story/one-mans-obsessive-fight-to-reclaim-his-cambridge-analytica-data/ The link above is for future reading and for now this is about The Great Hack (2019) and ultimately Steve Bannon, who has been in the news.

It was specific to the internet but it is also the way some people may think and it is very much a sign of the times. It was something like “self convincing.” You can find anything. Maybe you […]
I suffered through it and you can too. Following are some links for afterward. https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2019/02/abducted-in-plain-sight-netflix-jan-broberg https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2019/02/abducted-plain-sight-review-netflix-documentary-robert-berchtold-brobergs/582145/ “Trust, shame, and complicity” are three good descriptions. Asked how Berchtold came up with this extravagant deception plan, Borgman said her only theory is that inspiration struck from the 70s zeitgeist. “This whole idea of science fiction was popular, […]
I am finally starting to put it together: KTVB, KSL, Fox10 Phoenix, and East Idaho News. EIN is connected to the Idaho Statesman through Nate Sunderland, the managing editor. There are some internet celebrities (Nate Eaton), real reporters (Justin Lum), YouTube phonies (take your pick), and just plain weirdos (Eric Grossarth). For now the things […]
I do like listening to all sides. I’ll just say I don’t like listening to people like LeBron James all the time. Who would have known? I certainly did not. Pretty much anyone who has ever had any contact with a police department is standing up. Statistics take a back seat because it does not […]
