Thanks for the ping, RB, looks like there will be quite a few "high profile" cases this winter!

Primetime: In the Shadow of Laci. I saw it. I found it very irritating. These people were complaining that their cases didn't get as much media attention as Laci. Well, guess what? You have to have EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES in a murder/disappearance to garner the attention of the media and the public. Yes, it's shockingly true! People disappear. People get murdered, but it must be ABOVE AND BEYOND the 'normal' crime to get the attention of anybody for very long.

A story needs "legs" to keep it going. That's a fact. If there is no more info besides so and so disappeared, where are they?, then it will die. That's just reality. So shut the heck up about people only care about Laci because she's white. It just so happens that the story has twists and turns that keep people interested.

Oh, and Elizabeth Vargas, why didn't you cover any missing MEN in your segment? Don't they matter? Are you sexist?

I'm glad I didn't see that program then if it was just some Latino's griping that they didn't get coverage like the Laci case because they were Latino. That is just bull!! I agree with your assessment. The case has to have "legs" and some very unusual circumstances to grab and "hold" the publics attention.!!

Hey Howlin - How goes it??? I was really turned off by that Kobe Bryant press conference. My gawd, they facial contortions, twisting his face, sucking in his mouth etc. etc. - drove me nuts. I thought he looked and sounded guilty as sin. I'm sorry, but he did NOT come off well. They best not have him testify on his own behalf.

Elizabeth Vargas should ask herself why the Kobe case is getting so much press. He's not white. It's because he's a rich, superstar sports figure who has a family-man rep. Unexpected, out-of-the-blue, bizarre. That's why these cases get picked, by and large. Sheesh.

The Laci case. Why is it so big? Let me count the ways: Modesto, Christmas Eve, dog with leash running through neighborhood, advanced pregnancy, clean-cut looking husband who's cheating, sociopath who fooled everybody, attractive teacher victim, husband fishing Christmas Eve, bodies found in same bay, husband dying hair with money ready to escape to Mexico. I'm sure I've forgotten a few things, but there it is.

I haven't seen any more posts on the Peterson case? This is due to lack of news, I assume? Well, thanks for keeping us updated all this time.

Hi Lynn! I think of you now while I'm watching DH, wondering if your watching up north...

Also, thursday on Prime Time, they will have a study of the Zodiac case and they teased, "startling new evidence!"

I haven't been posting a daily thread on Laci Peterson for lack of new news.... I knew I shouldn't go there on a Kobe...Besides, wasn't he and what's his name an eye sore for the Sacramento Kings championship 2 yrs ago, and the judges sort of took away the games from the Kings?... (ah oh, maybe I shouldn't go there...lol...) ;o)
