Why would I go ballistic?

I’m not married to any particular theory. That said, I’ll still take the word of the national military security apparatus than some lonely airport manager who probably spent most of his time beating off to Playboy centerfolds than listening in on radio transmissions.

Chaucer, so you have a connection to "the national military security apparatus"?
Do you? Because my point was that the powers that be all agree that 305 was on V-23 that night. I don’t have to have a connection to be able to read 302s and look at the evidence.

Honestly, I don’t understand why you feel the need to antagonize me with every post. If I have behaved in a way in the past that made you feel like every reply to my post had to be snarky and negative, I sincerely apologize.

I’d rather cooperate with you than fight. Yes, we disagree about the WFP, but that shouldn’t require us to attack each other at every turn.

Consider this an olive branch.

Chaucer, you seem to be unaware that I have also claimed that the airliner was on V-23 except for the brief time in the Portland/Vancouver area when it wasn't.  And I think that I have pointed out that even in bypassing Portland on the west side it was never more than 3 or 4 miles from the edge of V-23.

You have made a lot of claims. A lot!  What is your current flight path? If you cant do graphics just use words.  Cheers.  8)

Georger, you just keep trying to pass off misinformation as something I have claimed.

As you in fact know, I have made very few claims in the now last 11+ years.  The current flight path is the same one I originally proposed.  Since I don't have any crayons and have always used words to describe things, I suggest that you see if anyone you know is actually fluent in English or any other written language.  Perhaps they could help you with the big words.

Has anyone nominated you for the Dr. Joseph Goebbels prize in literature this year?

Some personal news:

1. I will be in New York on family business for two weeks, October 12-26. I hope to continue posting here at that time, but in case I don't - don't worry. Remember - another trip back east resulted in folks here getting concerned when they hadn't heard from me for awhile, and some called the cops who showed up and freaked out my landlord. I'm still hearing about it.... sigh.

2. The 3rd Edition of DB Cooper and the FBI - A Case Study of America's Only Unsolved Skyjacking is at the publisher - Moonshine Cove Press - and they feel the book will be released by November 1, 2021. They are beginning a pre-order program so that folks who want the book can get them at that time and not have to wait for another press run. Details will be forthcoming shortly.

3. Big Shout Out to Nat Loufoque who set up the deal with Moonshine. Thanks, Nat.

Do you have additional information about her death?  It seems strange that we haven't heard about this sooner since that was eight months ago.

Sad news. Jo was a character, but she was an indefatigable fixture in the Vortex.

Rest in piece.

Nothing additional -  you were not on the need-to-know list. Try her obit for the inside info you want. Didn't know you and Jo were close ?   ;)

Georger, are you claiming that you were on the "need-to-know list"?  As I remember it, Jo let you know that she was very fond of cows, etc.  I couldn't find an obituary for her.  And I would like to see a fact-based one.  Assuming there is an obituary somewhere, what is the name for it.  "Jo Weber" apparently is not it.

Wow.

Jo's passing is like watching the eye of the hurricane pass overhead. Weird, but real, and such a change in the natural order.

Jo staked her claim to the DB Cooper case, and the rest is history. Sadly, Jo was not the Cooper case but only an opportunist feeding on it. Maybe the whole thing was a cry for help! Jo played her game but she was careful not to claim her husband was Ted Kaczynski, or that Ckret was her son! Jo's shifting claims always avoided any final judgement. Like a shell game with no pea. Jo herself was smoke and mirrors with a $100 bill and a bottle of champagne exchanged at an airport. Everyone has to make a living doing something.

Georger, your comparison to a shell game with no pea is very appropriate.  When all was said and done, there wasn't anything there in all of Jo's claims.

When the DropZone site was locked a few years ago, Jo and Blevins were making about 50 percent of the posts.  Jo faded away but Blevins rose from wherever when the DZ site was reopened recently.

However, Blevins seems to be going through some kind of crisis himself at this point.  Blevins movie star wife has headed to California without him and he has moved to Yakima.  Plus, he is now joining the UFO universe.

Bruce is correct that sea changes in the Cooper Universe are in progress.
