Rough Sketch of a Serial Killer

Now that the Golden State Killer has been brought to justice, how many other serial killers are still out there? This article caught my eye because if I had heard of "The Doodler" in the '70's, I had forgotten about him and the many gay men he killed. And he is just one killer.

Another killed my uncle, a San Francisco artist, back in the '60's; beaten to death on a fog-shrouded street in the City. His murder is still unsolved as well.

My respect to detectives like the one in this article who dig in to cold cases and find new leads; new hope for the family members who wait.

Sought for the killings of at least five gay men more than 40 years ago, the Doodler is still at large.

Hey I know I haven't put much on the page lately. I honestly don't like posting stuff just for the sake of posting. And if I feel strongly about something, I have to watch the opinion thing. I'll put it on the New Year's resolution list. jm

Most wordsmiths have pet peeves about how our language is misused, ok, butchered.
This one is easy and yet I just heard a reporter say it yesterday; PAST HISTORY. I believe he was speaking of the airworthiness history of the plane that crashed in Santa Ana which, by the way, was NOT "completely destroyed!" It was just destroyed.
Come on fellow writers, let's do better! And we don't have to "join together" or "follow after" each other-- just a little "joint cooperation."

Good Morning!
Reporter's note:
As we report on the terrible fires in our state, it's important we don't confuse people. But that has happened over the past ten days because of the names CalFire attaches to fires.
When I first heard about the "Railroad" fire on the radio, I thought there was a fire on a train somewhere. The "Carr Fire" when reported outside of the print media sounds like a fire that began in a car. And the new "Holy Fire"... well, it has nothing to do with godliness.
Fire departments name fires based on the best estimate of where the fire began; usually using road names or landmarks. The names allow them to distinguish and remember the ignition points. It's their job to keep records.
We, on the other hand, just need to tell you there is a fire in a particular area burning in a particular direction. But journalists sometimes parrot language from officials out of an abundance of caution... and, I am the first to admit, out of a lack of discernment for clarity.
So try not to get tripped up on the sometimes strange names you hear and I'll try to do my part in being clear about the important things you need to know.
Oh, and the "Holy" reference?... Comes from a trail that was named after a guy from a hundred years ago named "Cussin Jim" but (if's reported) puritanical government types renamed him "Holy Jim". See what I mean about these names?

Chief: Silver Lake Trader Joe’s Manager Was Killed by LAPD Gunfire

Today's news conference by new LAPD Chief Michel Moore is the most timely, unequivocating and transparent I can remember from the LAPD. No slight meant to his predecessor but if this is the tenor to come at the department, the public will be well served. Here is our link to today's #TraderJoes body / car cam video:

https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2018/07/24/chief-silver-lake-trader-joes-manager-melyda-corado-killed-by-lapd-gunfire/

Melyda Corado was struck by officers' gunfire while they were engaged in a shootout with the suspect.

An Early Happy Fourth of July

I haven't posted much on this page lately, maybe because there is little room in which to fit an optimistic word during this vitriolic time we are living in. I also am cautioned, as a journalist, to weigh carefully my words, even my "likes" and "retweets" lest I appear biased. Well, we all have bias but let me instead, as we approach the July 4th holiday, tell you what I am an advocate for.

The First Amendment. Journalism. Facts. Truth.

These are things not to be toyed with because, when they are, the course of our country can be perilously altered; lives can be lost. Thursday's massacre of journalists at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, MD leaves no doubt about this. The news media have been under attack in a way not seen in modern history; ad hominem attacks-- vitriol taking the place of fact-based argument. And nowhere is this more evident than at the top of our nation's leadership.

As I write this (Friday), our president made his first, albeit brief, remarks about the Capital Gazette mass shooting. The president said, " Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job,". Yet he, above all other leaders, is on record delivering the greatest number of assaults on journalists. Beyond calling us "Fake news" he continues to call us "Liars", an "Enemy of the People", "The most dishonest people..." and worse.

When this message is repeated over and over not just by a president but by the Executive Branch of government and by congressional emissaries doing his bidding, people with an ax to grind become emboldened. This week, a Lake Arrowhead woman was recorded berating a young Latino man saying, “You’re rapists, animals, drug dealers, rapists, animals. Even the President of the United States says so...". She added she hated him, "...Cause you're Mexicans."

These attacks on journalists, on people who don't agree with a certain point of view, on people of color, on TRUTH have to stop. This is not a path toward freedom, liberty or justice; certainly not as our Founding Fathers envisioned. Please, as you think about celebrating your Independence Day, remember that these liberties and rights that are the pillars of our democracy come with responsibility. Be careful with them because they are more fragile than we realize. And they depend on all of us respecting them... and each other.
