Posting an article is a nuisance; first you have to do a search. I don't mean to complain, but the FR search engine is not very user friendly and I don't know what you are supposed to do about that asterisk, back it out or what. And it's hard to get an exact match on headline. Then I need to find the page with the papers that are link-only or excerpts.
Google makes it almost impossible to find anything on FR any more so I try bing, not much better. Sometimes I like to find an older post I made or another FReeper fast.
So I'll tack it on your thread as news of the day. Want to look up a clip of that brother who gave a very strange interview, different style but reminiscent of Rod Blagojevitch in a manic state.
So Iowa can claim Wild Bill Cody (Buffalo Bill) and this abomination, born very close together distance-wise, not in time. And that photo might not even be him, probably is but much younger. I don't know why they want to make him look more normal anyway.
And according to his gf, he yelled out and moaned when lying down. Yesterday he was perfectly normal blah blah.
Another chilling fact is that he actually booked a room in a hotel overlooking Grant Park last August, one news account said booked once, then revised to a few days earlier, then never showed. I thought it was the concert Malia had such a great time.
When I watched that clip of Malia months ago, I thought she has secret service but how hard to protect her in that crowd from a crazy? They are supposed to scan upper stories and I don't want to think they aren't foolproof but I don't see how they could have stopped this guy if he did stay in that hotel and aimed for the Lollapalooza festival, 100,000 in attendance.
Wondered why he changed his mind; heard a conjecture that it was because of his gf. He wanted to shield her all right and massacred so many people. One theory is that he planned to escape and possibly live with her in the Philippines.
“the FR search engine is not very user friendly”
Yeah, sometimes if you don’t come up with the right key search terms it can be a chore. In this case that he was born in *Clinton* Iowa doesn’t help a lot, you get a gazillion hits just from “Clinton”.
This might be of some help on this case in particular, if you haven’t yet tried it:
what you are supposed to do about that asterisk,
Nothing. Put a couple of key words in the search box and hit search. I
usually on search on titles but you can search on yahoo, keyword or users.
