  1. Yes, that guy. Great ex-president, perhaps the best ever. But absolute train wreck as President. I find it ironic how the worst president of my lifetime was immediately followed by the greatest....well, until recently.
  2. Jimmy Carter. At least in my lifetime.
  3. Robert, the party that you currently support has been doing this very thing for quite a while now. Watch the news lately? We shouldn't be discussing politics here, but since you brought it up I will add this: Trump may lose, I personally think he's in trouble. I also gave him no chance 4 years ago, so we'll see. But if he loses, it won't be for the reason you stated above. It will be because we live in a country that is full of snowflakes. Peace
  4. It's also true that not all of them are known to have young runaway boys in their home. That alone is reason enough to go to great lengths to hide cash and valuables.
  5. Robert, this isn't true. I have put my two cents in, but done so privately which in my opinion is the best way to do it. When you continuously poke at the spammer every day, it just makes him do it more, and I can't help but think that you know that.
  6. I don't think that you can use Occam's Razor here. There are too many unknowns. There are probably certain aspects of the case where you could do that, but to try and determine Cooper's fate through Occam's Razor, is a crap shoot, at best.
  7. So, the family and I have spent the last couple of days in Pigeon Forge, TN. One of the attractions that we visited today was the Alcatraz East Crime Museum. It's a pretty neat visit that chronicles a large amount of historical crimes. Among the things there is the actual Ford Bronco that OJ Simpson was riding in during the famous and perhaps most slowest police chase ever. The Volkswagen beetle belonging to Ted Bundy is also on display there as well. One of the more interesting things that I saw, was a piece of flooring from the house where Jesse James was shot and killed. The flooring had blood stains from James' blood. Our friend, Mr. Cooper was also represented:
  8. I think the goal is to get this forum shut down again. At some point the mods will get tired of having to continuously delete posts and do just that.
  9. Robert, is this about Bryan, or is this just another avenue for you to use as a way to lash out against the Cooper forum? Here is what I do not understand: If Bryan needs help and you really want to help him, and you really want to have "one last big-ass Cooper party with AB of Seattle fronting the expenses for him", why not just reach out to him? Why does someone else need to serve as the middleman for that? Offer him help, he will either accept it or he won't. Remember your own words: sometimes you make a choice that is best for someone ELSE, rather than what is easier for you. Again I ask, is this about Bryan, or is this just another avenue for you to use as a way to lash out against the Cooper forum?
  10. I think someone, maybe Flyjack, found a memo where someone was told to dispose of the cigarette butts. Maybe someone can clarify that? I've always wondered if the cigarette butts were a misdirection of sorts. This is a little bit of a rabbit hole I guess, and I try to stay away from rabbit holes, but Cooper didn't leave much behind in the way of evidence. But he sure didn't mind revealing his brand of smokes. Maybe that wasn't even his brand. I certainly would not lean more favorably toward a suspect that smoked Raliegh cigarettes than I would someone that smoked a different brand. But that's just me....
  11. One of the McCoy files that is posted at The DB Cooper Forum, says that the 3 stewardesses said that McCoy's picture was "not identical" to Cooper. There were 2 other witnesses that indicated a "strong resemblance" and would not rule him out. I think this is from File #2. As far as why Cooper wasn't caught, he lost the money. It's that simple. Whoever he was, he didn't have that sudden influx of money that most people think Cooper must have had. So no one noticed anything different about him. No red flags. That's my best guess as to why he was never caught.
  12. I agree. The problem is that not everyone will have the same level of requirement for a public solve. How much circumstantial is enough? I'd love to see it, but my naturally pessimistic glass half empty attitude says we never will. I hope I'm wrong.
  13. No apology is necessary, but I learned a long time ago that when someone offers an apology, you accept it, so I will. I have to be honest though, when I read this I wasn't sure what you were talking about. In my traveling this week, I managed to miss the post you are talking about so I had to go back and see this "overreaction". So, I won't respond to any of it other than to say - for clarification purposes - that LD Cooper is certainly not my suspect. I do not think that any of the known suspects are Cooper. I'm pretty much a skeptic when it comes to suspects. I think with enough effort, a circumstantial case can be made for anyone who fits the physical requirements. At the end of the day, I just want to see the case solved. I love a good mystery, but not without the conclusion. If Kenny Christiansen were proven to be Cooper, I'd be fine with it. I say the same for any of the suspects that have been put forth. I just want to know who did it and why. I don't think we ever get that answer.
  14. Are you sure about that? I thought the debate was that it may be nylon as opposed to silk. But ripstop nylon would have been very easily identified, or so I thought.
  15. Robert, nowhere in the NPR story does it say that LD Cooper was dismissed as a suspect. That is my point. You keep saying he has been, when in fact he hasn't been. There is a difference between someone being eliminated from being the hijacker and someone not being proven to be the hijacker. What you are doing here is lying, plain and simple. You know the truth, and choose to say something in contrast with the truth. That is a lie.
