I agree, I think a lot of yawning will occur the first nite....then they will push that little red button that says "only in an emergency"  O0 O0 O0 O0


I'm betting that the first night will be LMNO night, and will be the history of DB Cooper - the details of the skyjacking and all the stuff that's followed since then, including us. Monday night, I suspect, will be Tom Colbert and Company night, and we'll see the roll-out of the 36 Cold Case Uber Sleuths doing their five-year study of... whomever... But, I'm sure they'll make it look good. I'm sure half of America will wake-up Tuesday morning convinced that the DB Cooper case has been solved. The only people who won't be in that half will be the folks I've met that are convinced that LD Cooper is DB Cooper, or the hoards of believers from Brad Meltzer's flock who are convinced that Kenny is Da Man.

That's the thing about Psy Ops. After awhile, it can get confusing and counter-productive.

Every ideology and church has its spokesmen. That includes you.  :))

This deep dive into the elusive D.B. Cooper mystery includes rare interviews with numerous experts, insiders and one-time suspects, as well as a sit-down with the one person who not only spent the most time with him during the crime, but was also the last to see the infamous skyjacker before he jumped into history."

Okay, they have to be talking about Tina here, right? If so, this has to be an old interview. No way they scored a sit down with her!

DBCooper.com wasn't taken?  I'm shocked. 

I was thinking Shutter could have gotten it, but I bet Colbert grabbed it years ago.

I went to whois.net.  It's been registered since 1999.

Case Not So Closed

Well, it's the home stretch, isn't it? On the way home from doing laundry this afternoon, I began thinking about the 36 Uber Sleuths, and I wondered why they haven't gotten a confession. One of the things many of us in the PNW do when we're not talking about DB Cooper is gossiping about Amanda Knox.

Amanda, for those of you who might not know, is a local gal - West Seattle - who flaps her gums even more than I do. One night in 2007 it landed her in the pokie, but in Perugia, Italia, which is a long way from home. Amanda and her boy friend, Raffaele, who is real sweetheart when I communicated with him on Facebook, got pinched for the murder of Amanda's college roommate, Meredith, a British gal, whose father is a freelancer on Fleet Street.

Amanda and Raffie ended up in the clink for four years on a 30-year bit until the Perugian people finally pulled their heads out of their buttioli, with the help of family and tons o' folks at the US State Dep't, including a few "retired" FBI agents who couldn't stand seeing a good girl get so screwed. The big problem for il Italiani, legally, was that there was NO DNA from Amanda or Raffie at the crime scene, even though it was a blood-bath, and that ultimately freed Amanda and Raff.

The bigger issue was how Amanda was treated, and how she tried to please her Italian captors. After endless interrogations, she said whatever made sense to her at 4 am, which was nutsy and incriminating, and that brings us to Danny Boy and the FBI.

One of the most cogent things I heard from the FBI guys helping Amanda was how they - and apparently the Perugian PD - know how to twist questions to extract the kind of information that they can splice together into something that sounds incriminating. As one FBI said, "At the FBI, we have a saying: 'We can convict anyone. The innocent just take a little longer.'"

So, how come our newly minted Ace Venturas can't get a confession from their Cooper suspect? Haven't their brethren learned anything from Gitmo or Abu Ghraib? C'mon, guys. Are you slackin - or what!'?

But, if they're not for the job, why not let me take a crack. If water-boarding is a little too dicey politically these days, then, how about you let me at 'em with an endless stream of chocolate cake. That'll  make anyone confess.

I know.

Case Closed Update
Here's the book:

The Last Master Outlaw
How he outfoxed the FBI Six Times, but not a Cold Case Team

by Thomas J Colbert and Tom Szollosi
(Blurb at Amazon:)

“D. B. Cooper” Is Alive and Well

In 1971, a skyjacker with a briefcase bomb demanded a $200,000 ransom and a parachute. Then he vanished out the jet’s back door and became an instant legend.

Now a determined citizen sleuth has assembled a forty-member cold case team, spearheaded by former FBI agents, to solve the mystery of D. B. Cooper. And after a five-year quest, they believe they have succeeded—with a fugitive at trail’s end.

The team’s relentless investigation and final confrontation with the mystery man serve as the bookends in The Last Master Outlaw. The suspect’s astonishing life story as a daredevil fills the remaining chapters, the bulk of which comes from the heartwarming, gut-wrenching accounts of six of his women—two former wives, his only sister, a befriended college coed, and a “getaway gal” he met up with during two more FBI escapes, both again involving planes, and a Hollywood producer who became his cocaine-trade partner.

Buckle your seatbelts as this Jekyll-and-Hyde ladies’ man travels through five countries, utilizing more than a dozen identities, wigs, and fake mustaches while engaging in a half-dozen careers and raising three families. Then be a witness as the cornered chameleon is forced to face the truth in front of the cameras of a dogged cold case team, armed and ready for any eventuality.

What was the comment? I don't remember posting anything that was trying to be funny, remotely or otherwise, that I recall, other than what is already here.
