The History Channel 

Just a brutal day. The hardest crises to fight through are the manufactured ones. I was at work at 6:30 this morning and got home about 8:00. In between were assholes, incompetence and hysteria.

Moving on.

I spend a lot of time on the History Channel. And I enjoy reading true crime. Mostly old ones. Real old ones. But anybody doing something awful gets my attention. Just to give you my perspective, Lizzie did it and so did Bruno. James Earle Ray did it, but he had a lot of help. Lee Harvey did it with no help.

Tonight the History Channel did the Lindberg kidnapping and the scamps gave me a turn by playing around with the despicable Ludovic Kennedy's notion that Lindberg was responsible. What a maroon. It's one thing to play stupid with the JFK assassination, but it they're going to go simple with the crime of New Jersey's century I might actually start writing letters.

They righted their ship with modern forensics proving beyond doubt that Hauptmann did write the ransom letters and the 16th rail did come from his attic. He might have had help, but Bruno Hauptmann was up to his neck in it. He was at the crime scene, at the cemetery, had the ransom money and was righteously executed.

Good job.
