Mr. Blevins. once again we have to clear a few things up. you complain that nobody really knows you while at the sametime speak for others constantly like they are your brother?

Nobody tried to stop anyone from working with you. I said no, Andrade also declined. Bruce wanted to speak with the producers or the production company which is a normal thing to do and was rejected. you need to stop making your own story line of events when trying to act like the most honest person on the planet.

I don't care who helps you Robert. I never told anyone not to work with you. you are constantly scared people will do what you do. that's your problem. you are your own enemy. several people have recently pointed that out to you on the DZ and you quickly shutdown the dialog. you clog up forums speaking of things years ago. Bruce is not Johnny Greene either. the DZ has ONE thread. stop saying what I can do on my forum vs what you do there. I have off topic threads..

Kenny is treated no different than any other suspect. you once again attach a false storyline. we have shown evidence that doesn't support what you have claimed over the years. nothing is consistent and lies have been uncovered whether you like it or not. it is what it is. if someone disagree's with you or doesn't like you will NOT change the facts surrounding Kenny. do you follow that? what happens on Bruce's site is between you and Bruce. I have nothing to do with it. got it? take it up with Bruce. you keep claiming none of the comments bother you but clog up the DZ with them daily?

Lets not forget the book loaded with error's that you admit and allow to profit from vs correcting....Mr. honesty?

Just a little clarity about me and RMB. And Cooper World in general.

At the Mountain News, RMB is banned from posting. He is also blocked from sending me emails. As a result, I have not had any direct communication with RMB in years.

The Mountain News receives posts on RMB on a daily basis, mostly from a collective known as: Johnny Greene, Marla, Gyspy23, and maybe one or two others. Most commentaries bash RMB. I delete them as soon as I am aware of them. The only ones I allow have some degree of DB Cooper information or evidentiary merit.

As for the DZ, I have visited there infrequently, perhaps twice a year. The only worthwhile posting there came from Flyjack, but the crapola from others like RMB was too much to bear to allow me to continue. Fortunately, Fly and I have developed a solid personal correspondence, and his recent contributions will be on display in the 3rd Edition, as will many nifty tidbits from Nat Loufoque, who has similarly joined forces with me in a quiet manner.

As for the 3rd Edition, I am in the midst of another major re-write/edit, which has delayed my outreach to publishers. But one way or another it will be out by the 50th. Current target date is late summer 2021.

One of the surprising dynamics in crafting the 3rd Edition is the fact that so many principals have died - Himms, Sail, Airborne Bob, etc... Thus, verb tense has to be changed throughout the book. Plus, with the FBI closing the case and the arrival of so many 302s - such as they are - almost every piece of analysis of FBI activity has to be reformed.

Plus we have Reca, Rackstraw, the diatoms and rare earth minerals, the Western Flight Path, Ammerman, the CooperCons, Eric's many contributions, podcasts and YouTubes up the ying-yang, etc. So, I've been busy.

Fortunately, I have been blessed with some fine Beta readers, such as Darren and Anonymous. Plus, Fly keeps busting my ass about something, but in a nice way...

Lastly, yesterday was one hellava hot day in Cooper Country. 98 in the shade at my little abode. How are things in Iowa, G. I hear the winds got pretty rough a few days ago.

A couple of months back I took down my two Cooper-related sites. The idea was to combine everything on one new site. This included my analysis of the money find spot with pictures.

That said, my new site is now up and running with DB Cooper info and much more to come.

No one. According to Bill Mitchell, he sat in seat 18-B and put his books in 18-C. His parka was on 18-A and he used it to take a nap.

This may not be relevant and it may only matter to Shutter, but Microsoft’s new Flight Simulator was released on Steam today. I only mention this because reviews for it have been unprecedented with everyone agreeing that it is next level amazing. I know some of you guys really like simulating the flight path. This might be something worth investing in.

New video. I talk about the prospect that DB Cooper wore a disguise.
