Our "Drive to 245": The Twenty-Seventh Step (First Quarter)

2020.10.22 05:14 Watchdogs66 Our "Drive to 245": The Twenty-Seventh Step (First Quarter)

The Drive To 245: Deprive the GOP In 25
 
In 2014 and with 234 House seats, the NRCC launched the “Drive to 245” campaign for the 2014 midterms, which focused on securing 245 seats for the 114th Congress. At the close of the midterms, they ended up picking up 13 seats, putting their new majority to 247 seats, 2 seats above the goal. For the majority of this election cycle, we had at least 234 House seats to start with, until a turncoat in disguise switched to the GOP in December 2019 (get fucked Jeff Van Drew) and we lost one of our districts in a May 2020 special election (get your act together Christy Smith). Despite these setbacks, getting to 245 seats in the next election is possible for us to achieve, if we are smart about it.
 
In late November 2018, I began by compiling an initial list of 25 potential districts that could give us the necessary gains for us to make the necessary net gain of 10 seats to fulfill our “Drive to 245” campaign goal. I then outlined the state representatives and state senators that we have on our side that live within (or at least represent a good portion of) the identified districts in the second step, which was split into parts one and two. These local officials are often our first line of offense when it comes to selecting appropriate candidates to flip GOP congressional districts, as these people often start out with significant amounts of name recognition (at least compared to most political novices), developed campaign infrastructures, and established donor networks to draw on. In the third step, I explored four different ways that these state representatives and state senators can help promising candidates build a solid platform to flip these 25 districts, even if we are not able to recruit any of these seasoned individuals themselves. I then proceeded to identify every individual local county Democratic organization within in each of these 25 districts to determine how much of a viable network exists towards flipping any of these districts, and whether any of them appear to be fledgling and underfunded, which was split into parts one, two, and three. I then proceeded to draw up rough battle plans to recruit the best candidates that are suitable towards making the necessary gains for the proposed 245 House seats, which I covered in parts one, two, and three. Since then, I updated my list of 25 districts to better reflect the developments that have occurred since November 2018, as well as the candidates from our end that have filed in those districts. After that, I covered updated game plans for the updated 25 districts, which was again split into parts one, two, and three. Another comprehensive update to the list was conducted in early July to account for the GOP retirements, lack of Democratic candidate recruitment for several districts, and other remarkable events that have occurred, all of which have been documented in said update. From there, more detailed plans were made that illustrated the overall status of the Democratic campaigns for each of these districts, which can be found in parts one, two, three, and four. These plans also highlighted which candidates appeared to have the most organized campaigns for each district, and which ones out of these strongest candidates needed the most assistance in terms of fundraising. Donation plans were also made that could sufficiently help out these struggling candidates, if every active user of this subreddit took part. After that, I provided a detailed plan for defending our 5 most endangered Democratic incumbents for this cycle. I next discussed the different methods that volunteers can help out a campaign, and what good campaigns should provide in such activities to optimize their voter outreach effectiveness, both of which can be found in parts one and two. In October 2019, I then provided another comprehensive review of the 25 districts that are the most likely to flip blue and the ideal strategies to accomplish that goal, which can be found in parts one, two, three, and four. After that, I provided an update on the overall status of our top 5 most endangered incumbents, and posted a rescue plan to help out the least financially stable campaigns, both of which can be found in this post. My next step provided day-by-day calendars highlighting volunteer events within the targeted 25 districts that helped participants develop vital Democratic infrastructure in those areas. These calendars, which ran from October 31 to January 15, can be found in parts one, two, three, and four. In late January, I gave a third update on the top 5 incumbents to defend this cycle. At the start of February 2020, I gave a fresh analysis of the 25 districts with the best chances of going blue, which are provided in parts one, two, three, and four. I then jumped to a day-by-day calendar of volunteer events of congressional campaigns operating throughout the 25 districts, which was originally planned to be released in four parts. However, the quickly deteriorating COVID-19 situation has forced this series to be suspended halfway through this step. The two calendars provided in this step, which ran from February 7 to March 19, can be found here and here. In April 2020, I provided an updated study of the 25 districts with the highest chances of flipping as well as the optimal strategies for each of these districts, which was delivered in parts one, two, three, and four. Later in May 2020, I provided another update on the top 5 incumbents to defend this cycle and their performances. I subsequently proceeded in June 2020 to provide a list of the competitive state house and state senate districts that overlapped one of the 30 congressional districts that this series targeted or defended, which was delivered in parts one, two, three, and four. Starting in late July 2020, I provided an updated perspective of the 25 districts with the highest chances of flipping as well as the optimal strategies for each of these districts, all of which were provided in parts one, two, three, and four. Shortly thereafter in August 2020, I provided a fresh update on the campaign status of the top 5 incumbents to defend this cycle. From there, I supplied a fresh view on the status of our campaigns in competitive state house and state senate districts that overlapped one of the 30 congressional districts that was targeted or defended by this series, which was given in parts one, two, three, and four. Next, I provided a calendar highlighting the important dates for the congressional campaigns operating within the 30 districts targeted and defended by this series. In October 2020, I provided a final comprehensive review of the 25 districts with the highest chances of flipping as well as the optimal strategies to pursue for each of these districts, which was delivered in parts one, two, three, and four. Shortly thereafter, I provided a final update on the general standing of the top 5 incumbents to defend this cycle.
 
This step will provide a final update on the competitive state house and state senate districts that lie within or near the 30 congressional districts that this series is either targeting or defending. These state legislative districts are grouped by state, and were then listed in the order of the related congressional districts’ overall priority, which is roughly based on factors such as whether there is an important up-ballot statewide race (Presidential or Senate) to support and the overall competitiveness of the congressional districts in question. Given the overall length of these strategies, this step will be split into four quarters. In the first quarter of this step, a list of competitive state legislative districts located in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New York will be provided.
Every state legislative district listed in this post will include its current controlling party (D, R, or VACANT), incumbent’s name (or an OPEN indication if said incumbent is retiring), experimentally calculated Cook PVI, the CNalysis rating given at the time of this writing, and the congressional districts that it overlaps with. The Democratic nominee’s campaign website and latest fundraising numbers will also be provided, as well as the latest fundraising numbers of the GOP opponent. At the end of each state’s group of legislative districts, a summary of the status of our campaigns there will be delivered.
Some candidates are indicated with a minus or a plus, which indicates the overall quality of their campaign websites according to criteria that was listed in the twentieth step of this series.

HD-104 (R, Chuck Efstration, R+15, Lean R): GA-07
Nakita Hemingway (-): $91,419, https://nakitahemingway.com/ GOP: Chuck Efstration: $333,898
HD-106 (R, Brett Harrell, R+4, Lean D): GA-07
Rebecca Mitchell (+): $140,862, https://www.rebeccaforgeorgia.com/ GOP: Brett Harrell: $365,910
HD-108 (D, Jasmine Clark, R+7, Lean D): GA-07
Jasmine Clark: $104,528, https://www.jasmineclarkforgeorgia.com/ GOP: Johnny Crist: $55,730
Summary: There is nothing notable in the Georgia State Senate races. There are a couple of notable observations to be found in the State House races, though. Democratic nominees Rebecca Mitchell in HD-106 and Jasmine Clark in HD-108 have both broken the $100,000 fundraising benchmark, indicating that exceptionally strong campaigns are taking place in these districts. Rebecca Mitchell, however, is still being outraised by the GOP incumbent Brett Harrell. The races that should have our attention right now are SD-9 and HD-102, as the Democratic nominees in these races are currently being outraised by their opponents as of the September 2020 reports. However, the gaps in these two races are narrow enough to close if more donations were directed towards the corresponding Democratic campaigns. Also, these Democrats have posted modest overall fundraising amounts, meaning that any donations this late in the election cycle have enough of an impact to change the course of these races.
Michigan:
HD-61 (R, OPEN, EVEN, Tilt D): MI-06
Christine Morse (-): $235,215, https://www.vote4morse.com/ GOP: Bronwyn Haltom: $338,495
Summary: The post primary reports show Christine Morse, the Democratic nominee in the sole State House race listed for this state, raising extraordinary amounts for her campaign. However, she is still getting outraised by her GOP opponent, Bronwyn Haltom. Christine Morse could definitely use some additional volunteer support in the last weeks to help turn this State House district blue.
Pennsylvania:
SD-15 (R, John DiSanto, R+3, Tilt R): PA-10
George Scott (+): $470,562, https://www.georgescottpa15.com/ GOP: John DiSanto: $610,909
HD-18 (R, K.C. Tomlinson, D+5, Tossup): PA-01
Harold Hayes (+): $769,538, https://www.hayesforpa.com/ GOP: K.C. Tomlinson: $505,630
HD-29 (R, Meghan Schroeder, R+5, Tilt R): PA-01
Marlene Katz (-): $119,149, https://www.marlenekatzforpa.com/ GOP: Meghan Schroeder: $131,295
HD-53 (D, Steven Malagari, R+1, Lean D): PA-01
Steven Malagari (+): $155,227, https://www.votemalagari.com/ GOP: Miles Arnott: $8,823
HD-105 (R, Andrew Lewis, R+6, Tilt R): PA-10
Brittney Rodas (-): $85,528, https://rodasforpa.com/ GOP: Andrew Lewis: $270,037
HD-143 (D, Wendy Ullman, R+4, Tilt D): PA-01
Wendy Ullman (+): $186,829, https://www.wendyullman.com/ GOP: Shelby Labs: $7,070
HD-144 (R, F. Todd Polinchock, R+5, Tilt R): PA-01
Gary Spillane (+): $75,000, https://www.electgaryspillane.com/ GOP: F. Todd Polinchock: $47,095
HD-151 (R, Todd Stephens, D+3, Tilt D): PA-01
Jonathan Kassa (+): $94,061, https://kassaforstaterep.com/ GOP: Todd Stephens: $115,030
HD-178 (R, Wendi Thomas, R+6, Tilt R): PA-01
Ann Marie Mitchell (+): $89,061, https://voteannmariemitchell.com/ GOP: Wendi Thomas: $306,305
Summary: George Scott has posted excellent fundraising numbers in his State Senate run, but is still running behind the GOP incumbent, John DiSanto. There are also a couple of notable observations for the battleground State House races. The latest fundraising reports revealed that the Democratic nominees running in HD-18, HD-53, and HD-143 are significant outraising their GOP opponents by at least six figures. This is expected for the latter two districts, as the Democrats there are currently the incumbents. HD-18, however, is probably due in part to the Democrat unsuccessfully running in a special election in this district earlier this year. For this state, the key races that need additional support are located in HD-29 and HD-151. In both of these races, the Democratic nominees are currently being outraised by the districts’ GOP incumbents as of the 30-day post primary reports and the few 2nd Friday pre-election reports that are available. However, the fundraising gaps are narrow enough to close if both of our candidates received more donations very soon. The overall fundraising numbers of these Democrats are also medium-sized, which means that last minute donations can improve their chances of winning.
New York:
SD-1 (R, OPEN, R+3, Tilt R): NY-01
Laura Ahearn: $428,097, https://www.ahearnforstatesenate.com/ GOP: Anthony Palumbo: $156,273
SD-3 (D, Monica Martinez, EVEN, Lean D): NY-01, NY-02
Monica Martinez: $670,406, https://monicaforsenate.com/ GOP: Alexis Weik: $128,872
SD-4 (R, Philip Boyle, R+2, Lean R): NY-01, NY-02
Christine Pellegrino: $134,156, http://www.christinepellegrino.com/ GOP: Philip Boyle: $38,442
SD-50 (VACANT, OPEN, D+3, Tilt D): NY-24
John Mannion (+): $295,673, https://www.mannionforstatesenate.com/ GOP: Angi Renna: $108,878
AD-9 (R, OPEN, R+11, Lean R): NY-02
Ann Brancato (+): $15,662, https://www.annbrancato.com/ GOP: Michael Durso: $47,837
AD-12 (VACANT, OPEN, R+5, Lean R): NY-02
Michael Marcantonio (+): $212,035, https://www.michaelmarcantonio.com/ GOP: Keith Brown: $104,942
AD-15 (R, Michael Montesano, R+5, Lean R): NY-02
Joseph Sackman III (+): $28,028, https://joesackmanfornysassembly.com/ GOP: Michael Montesano: $31,755
AD-121 (R, John Salka, R+5, Tilt R): NY-22
Dan Buttermann (-): $34,358, https://www.buttermannforassembly.com/ GOP: John Salka: $17,238
Summary: The 32 day pre general reports highlight a couple of noticable observations in the New York state legislative races. In the State Senate races, Monica Martinez, the Democratic incumbent for SD-3, is posting a very strong fundraising amount and is vastly outraising her GOP opponent Alexis Weik. Over in the State Assembly races, Ann Brancato, the Democratic nominee in AD-9, is raising a rather low five-digit cumulative sum. A viable candidate needs to raise at least $21,000 in order to get a state assembly campaign off the ground, if past trends in New York races hold. AD-15 is the sole race to focus on for this state, as Democratic nominee Joseph Sackman III has posted a moderate fundraising amount and is being slightly outraised by his GOP opponent Michael Montesano, according to the 32 day pre general reports. This means that small dollar donations can considerably improve Joseph Sackman III’s chances of flipping the district if enough of them are directed to his campaign very soon.
 
And thus we come the end of this step’s first quarter. The second quarter will go over target legislative districts situated in Oklahoma, Utah, South Carolina, and New Mexico. Then, the third quarter will identify key districts in Texas, Ohio, Illinois, Florida, and Indiana. After that, the final quarter will cover competitive districts in California, Colorado, Nebraska, and Montana. So stay tuned! Any corrections or comments are welcome.

2020.08.08 01:38 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of the letter ‘S’ in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

Below is a rundown of the letter ‘S’ under Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/).
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters G-I on July 13, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hqko0y/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_gi_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters J-L on July 15, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hrq9bg/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_jl_of_jeffrey/).
I posted letter M on July 20, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/huw0yt/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_the_letter_m_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters N-Q on July 27, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hyudbz/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_the_letters_nq_in_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I posted letter R on July 29, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/i0aqxd/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_the_letter_r_in_jeffrey/)
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf
S
Sacco, Amy: Nightclub mastermind behind Bungalow 8 and many other clubs. Listing her list of connections would take too long because her clubs are always hot spots for celebrities and the elite. The NY Times wrote a decent article (https://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/14/fashion/the-empress-is-in-amy-sacco-holds-court-at-another-new-york-nightspot.html) about Sacco’s clubs and clientele. Sacco has been photographed with Ghislaine, India Hicks, and Sophie Dahl, all of whom appear in Epstein’s black book (https://www.patrickmcmullan.com/photo/1563479).
Sachs, Jeffrey: Naming all of his titles would be an endeavor in itself. Sachs is a very influential figure who is best known for being an economist, an adviser to the United Nations, and a University Professor at Columbia University. Sachs serves on the Council on Foreign Relations, where Epstein served from 1995-2009. It is unclear whether he was there at the same time as Epstein, although given his popularity and influence, especially in the early 2000s, I would be surprised if he wasn’t around then.
Saffra, Edmund: Billionaire banker and alleged money launderer with tons of enemies who died under very mysterious circumstances in 1999. The official story was that one of his nurses - in an attempt to gain favor with Safra by saving him from danger - intentionally started a small fire in Safra’s home, which soon spiraled out of control, causing Safra to lock himself in the bathroom and suffocate to death. This article (https://www.vanityfair.com/culture/2000/12/dunne200012) does a good job of pointing out that Safra had many enemies, was a shady character, and was absolutely obsessed with security for himself and his family. It seems odd that Safra would allow his security detail (Mossad vets) to leave his home that night. This article (https://www.theguardian.com/theobserve2000/oct/29/features.magazine47) from The Guardian includes a statement from Ted Maher’s (the nurse who was convicted of starting the fire) wife, stating that he was coerced into signing a confession. Elie Wiesel, the author of Night who is also listed in Epstein’s contacts, was a good friend of Safra’s.
Safro, Wayne: Financial advisor.
Said, Wafic: Financier and businessman. Said is the Chairman of a children’s charity called the Said Foundation, where Prince Charles’s former private secretary, Sir Michael Peat GVCO, serves on the board of trustees (https://www.saidfoundation.org/pages/33-trustees-and-staff). The charity helps underprivileged children from the Middle East. Said has also contributed a lot of money to Prince Charles’s The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund, which, among other things, is dedicated to helping children.
Sainsbury, Mr Jamie: Descendant of the founder of the Sainsbury grocery chain. Old friend of Ghislaine Maxwell (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8466853/What-girls-frolicked-Bullingdon-boys-Oxfords-brightest-young-women-rose-top.html). James’s sister, Camilla, was married to British MP, Shaun Woodward, for 28 years. Camilla and Shaun are Trustees of The Woodward Charitable Trust, which helps disadvantaged children, women, and families (http://woodwardcharitabletrust.org.uk/portfolio/about_us/).
Salama, Eric: Former CEO of Kantar consulting firm. Also served as a Trustee for the British Museum (2000-2008). Survived a carjacking after getting stabbed last year (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6618395/Government-adviser-stabbed-carjacking-reveals-fine-punctured-lung.html).
Saltzman, Elizabeth: Contributing editor to Vanity Fair and Vogue, two of the three publications (along with Tatler) that continuously show up among Epstein’s contacts. Saltzman is also a celebrity fashion stylist with clients such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Saoirse Ronan, Stella McCartney, and Uma Thurman, the ex-wife of Arpad Busson, who is possibly one of the key players in this pedophile ring (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cl34ju/arpad_busson_billionaire_businessman_or_possible/). Andre Balazs, the hotelier who also seems to be embroiled in this whole fiasco held a party in 1995. Those in attendance included Ghislaine Maxwell, Katie Ford, and Elizabeth Saltzman (https://www.nydailynews.com/archives/gossip/taming-liz-fortensky-rumors-article-1.686445), all of whom appear in Epstein’s black book. In fact, Saltzman is a long-time friend of Ghislaine (https://www.mintpressnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Mysterious-business-of-the-queen-of-NY-Lon-1.pdf). This article also reveals that Ghislaine was introduced to Prince Andrew by the Duchess of York (Sarah Ferguson), and, even more telling, that Epstein was suspected of having Mossad ties when the article was written in 2000. In addition to all this, Saltzman is the ex-wife of hedge fund billionaire Glenn Dubin (https://www.nytimes.com/1987/09/14/style/miss-saltzman-editor-is-wed-to-glenn-dubin.html), one of the most heavily implicated people in Epstein’s pedophilia and child trafficking ring. I implore you to read more about Dubin (and his wife) in my D-F black book thread (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/). Saltzman can also be seen here, sitting next to Prince Andrew in 2010 (https://www.grandforksherald.com/news/world/4780114-Britains-Prince-Andrew-is-stepping-back-from-public-duties-after-Epstein-controversy). The lists of celebrities and well-known figures that Saltzman has been photographed with is unending.
Samuels, Mia: Actually Maia Samuel, former Producer of ABC Primetime (1989-1994). Went on to work for NBC, Bloomberg, and CNBC in various producer roles over the years. Now works as Director, Content Studios for Reuters (https://www.linkedin.com/in/maia-samuel-92172a10). Epstein has quite a few television ties, most notably to ABC news programs.
Sandelman, Jon & Corrie: Jonathan is a hedge fund manager and former Managing Director of Bank of America Securities. Corrie is his wife.
Sangster, Guy & Fi: Son of racing tycoon Robert Sangster, Guy is Managing Director at Sangster Group, which is involved in the Horse Racing industry. He also works as an investment adviser with Hambro Perks, a venture capitalist company. Prince Andrew is a close friend of Guy and his wife, Fiona. Prince Andrew even attended Sangster’s 40th birthday party (https://www.the-sun.com/news/136709/prince-andrews-pals-claims-witness-who-saw-him-with-sex-slave-is-confused-as-he-was-in-club-3-days-late).
Sangster, Mr Ben: Guy Sangster’s brother and fellow racing heir. Long-time acquaintance/friend(?) of the Royal Family. According to this article, the Sangsters are “one of the most high profile society families in London and often hang out with the royals (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5008073/Robert-Sangster-s-son-marries-Princess-Eugenie-s-friend.html).
Santo Domingo, Julio Mario: Unsure if this is the father or the son. Either way, this is a billionaire Colombian businessman whose company has controlling stock in Bavaria Brewery and is the 2nd highest stockholder of Anheuser Busch (15%). The senior Julio Mario Santo Domingo died in 2011. His son died from cancer in 2009.
Santo, Mr & Mrs M Espirito: Likely the former owners (or high-ranking family) of the Espirito Santo banking dynasty., which was forced to shutter due to charges of fraud, money laundering, and falsifying documents (https://www.cnbc.com/2014/07/30/how-a-portuguese-banking-mess-took-down-a-dynasty.html). Banco Espirito Santo was Portugal’s second-largest bank.
Saud Prince Solman: Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was a close friend of Epstein’s and met with him many times. Epstein even had a photograph of bin Salman hanging on his wall. The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia has been linked to the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi dissident who was lured to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and subsequently killed. The Crown Prince, said to have ordered the murder, and those who were physically involved with the murder, ultimately went unpunished. According to this article (https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/jeffrey-epstein-what-we-know-about-paedophile-businessmans-ties-middle-east), the numbers listed likely belong to the Crown Prince’s father, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia. Epstein’s Austrian passport had a fake name and Saudi address. This passport was to have been given to him by “a friend.” In November 2016, one day before the election, Epstein flew to Riyadh. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Amazon owner Jeff Bezos were in Riyadh at the same time, leading some to believe that the three may have met up (https://www.insider.com/epstein-riyadh-saudi-arabia-private-jet-2019-9).
Scerbo, Randall: A female (despite the name) fashion stylist and costume designer who eventually went into consulting. Randall also has credits as a producer and content creator for the Miss USA and Miss Universe beauty pageants.
Schiatti, Gianmarco: Creative director who helped several fashion companies (Gucci, Chanel, Coach, Ralph Lauren, Prada, etc.) with rebranding.
Schifter, Helen & Tim: Helen is a former arbitrage trader on Wall Street, as well as a socialite and a former editor at Hearst and Conde Nast (publisher of Tatler and Vogue), making this the 9000th Epstein-Conde Nast connection. Helen’s father is a businessman and has served as a consultant for the Du Pont Company.

Sebag Montefiore Simon & Santa: Simon Montefiore is a British historian, television presenter, and author of history books and novels. Ghislaine attended the launch of Montefiore’s book, “The Court of the Red Tsar” (https://deepclips.com/clip/3225/exclusive-i-fear-i-saw-virginia-roberts-inside-jeffrey-epstein-s-creepy-new-mexico-ranch-contractor-claims). Santa is his wife and sister of Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, who died of an ulcer in 2017. The Palmer-Tomkinson family is so close with the Royal Family that Prince Charles was named Tara’s godfather. As such, Simon and Santa are good friends of Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/4721868/The-lit-girl.html). Simon’s great-great-uncle was an international financier who worked for the Rothschilds in the 1800s. Siimon and his family are still close to the Rothschilds to this day (https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2008/01/montefiore200801).

Her career in Hollywood has been obliterated, although many still secretly think she has been a scapegoat (https://www.townandcountrymag.com/society/money-and-powea29643007/peggy-siegal-jeffrey-epstein-connection/), which once again proves the depravity of Hollywood.
Siegel, William (Bill): President of Chris-Craft Industries (1996-2001), a broadcasting company that owned several television channels across the U.S. Chris-Craft was eventually purchased by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation for $5.3 billion.

Henry helped build Cendant Corporation, which specializes in car rentals, travel reservations, and real estate brokerage services. Nancy and Henry divorced in 2012 after 30 years of marriage.

Soames and his company is heavily involved in many aspects of government (he is very close with former British Prime Minister David Cameron), and as such, has a huge impact on the public. For example, Serco has been contracted to work on a Coronavirus track-and-trace system for the United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS) (https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/jun/04/nhs-track-and-trace-system-not-expected-to-be-operating-fully-until-september-coronavirus). Soames’s family is very close with the Royal Family (https://www.popsugar.com/celebrity/photo-gallery/44913948/image/44914915/Camilla-Dunne-Honorable-Rupert-Soames-1988).

Solomon, Andrew: Writer for The New York Times, The New Yorker, and other publications. Member of Council on Foreign Relations where Epstein once served.
Soros Peter: Nephew of George Soros. Works as an investment banker. Soros’s name is circled in Epstein’s black book. It turns out that Epstein’s former house manager circled the names of all material witnesses before he died in 2014 (https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/07/jeffrey-epstein-black-book-nick-bryant).

He was on the infamous Epstein Africa flight with Clinton and Chris Tucker. Spacey also made this chilling video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZveA-NAIDI), which many think was a direct threat to the Royal Family. As a lot of you know, Spacey was close with the Royal Family and Ghislaine Maxwell. Just last month, a picture surfaced of Spacey and Ghislaine sitting on the British throne (https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/04/uk/maxwell-spacey-throne-gbr-intl/index.html).

Leonard founded Homes for the Homeless, a charity that aims to help the financially disadvantaged. A large focus of the charity is children and youth (https://www.hfhnyc.org/). Leonard is also quite the heartless bastard. He announced that he was selling a Homes for the Homeless apartment building in midtown Manhattan, forcing its inhabitants to move out (https://thejewishvoice.com/2019/12/billionaires-nyc-homeless-facility-boots-out-elderly-tenants-before-holidays/). Just to show an example of how all these wealthy people truly do know each other, here is a link with pictures of Malcolm Forbes’s 70th birthday party in Morocco in 1989.

2020.06.26 03:39 zangoose28 My Fic “An Ode to the Stars” Chapter 2: Return to Echo Creek

Chapter 2: Return to Echo Creek Return to Echo Creek
-Note: anything in Italics is either thoughts or flashbacks, depending on the scene.
The mood on Mewni was damp and rather dreary, with the rain pouring down from the usually pinkish sky, now grey and cloudy, nourishing the corn growing in the fields but forcing the residents to stay huddled up inside their homes. The mood in Star Butterfly's room was rather joyous, albeit lazy, one. It had been four days since Marco's confession to Star Butterfly, his new girlfriend, and old best friend. The pair sat in Star's bed in her room, cuddling under a blanket, watching telenovelas, and eating nachos Marco MacGyvered together from Mewman food he had found. This is what the couple had been doing for the past few days.
"This episode is really dumb," Star said to her new boyfriend lying beside her, "Those two shoulda already gotten together, but they put off them becoming a couple till like, the last 3 episodes." She then picked up a nacho from the bowl between them and chewed and swallowed it.
"Yeah, those two clearly liked each other, but they ended up with other people, for like two seasons, that was just bad writing," Marco responded.
"Speaking of LOOOOVVEEEE, I've got a question for ya Marco," Star said, transitioning the conversation.
"Ask away Star," Marco responded, glancing over to his new partner.
"I loved your confession, but why was it so fancy-schmancy?" Star asked making a gesture with her hands.
"Well, I kinda planned it out beforehand, not all of it, but some parts of it," Marco told his newfound girlfriend. "I wanted to sound just right and not ruin everything. Sorry if it was too corny."
"Nah it wasn't, I for one, liked it, and I'm glad we found each other," Star reassured her boyfriend.
"Me too Star," Marco responded before himself reaching to take a nacho. Unluckily for him, he knocked over the bowl and the cheese spilled out on the Earth boy and his royal partner. "Oh crap!" Marco shouted as the creamy sauce spilled and stained the blanket and his "Hot Dawg" shirt. "I'm so sorry Star."
"It's fine Marco, I'll just get a new dress," Star responded, getting up and taking off the stained Blanket and walking to her closet. Marco looked away as Star started changing until she said, "I'm dressed."
Marco then realized something that immediately took precedence for him, he had only one other clean shirt left.
"Star, I don't have any other clean laundry left here!" Marco shouted across the room to his girlfriend, who was still rummaging in her closet.
"Well good news about that!" Star shouted, jumping up from her rummaging "I found one your hoodies!" She then pulled out a dirty red hoodie from out of her closet and ran back to bed and sat down with the jacket in hand.
"That's good, but how did that hoodie end up in your closet, Star?" Marco questioned.
"I don't know Marco, things end up in strange places all the time," Star answered, "One time, I found my wand under the sink in your bathroom."
"But I never went into your room before I lost that hoodie," Marco said, confusion on his voice.
"Fine, I admit that I took one your hoodies when I knew I was leaving," Star told her partner in admission, slightly mumbling and talking speedily. "I wanted something to remember you by because I thought I was never gonna see you again, and I kept it after you came here because I thought you were gonna go back to Earth, and it smelled like you and all the adventures we've had together. I wanted you to find it on your own after the confession, so you wouldn't get upset with me. I'm sorry Marco"
"It's ok Star, though next time you want something of mine, just ask me.," Marco said in response to his girlfriend confession. "Also it stinks like feet, so can we send down to the laundry room or something?"
"Ok, on it." She said as she went over the laundry chute in her room, took one last sniff of the bright red hoodie, and threw it down the tunnel to the castles washroom. "It'll be ready in a few days." She told him as she walked away from the chute,
Marco got up and walked to his bag on the floor a bit from Star's bed. He started rummaging through the bag and took out the last clean shirt he had, a plain grey one, and took it out and took off his "Hot Dawg" shirt and replaced it with his grey one.
"Star, I've been putting this off for a little while now but, I have to go to Earth to get some stuff for me if I'm gonna stay here," Marco said as he walked to the laundry chute and dropped his stained shirt in.
"I'll come with you Marco, then we can see all our old Earth friends, " Star said joyfully, "I miss your parents."
"So do I Star, but I'm kinda worried about their reaction me deciding to stay on Mewni with you," Marco spoke while putting his loose bag together.
"Don't worry Diaz, it'll be fine," Star responded confidently. "Now let's go!"
"Wait Star!" Marco yelled before Star grabbed his hand, "We should leave a note for your parents."
"Oh right," Star remembered out loud, she grabbed her wand from her nightstand and summoned a notepad and pen and handed it to Marco. She thought about how adorable it was that Marco was sticking out his tongue out while he was writing the note.
"He's so cute, I'm lucky to have him." Star thought, a smile on her face.
"Ok, I'm ready," Marco said as he grabbed his duffel bag and put the note on Star's bed. He took his dimensional scissors out of the bag and made a cut which created a blue portal, Marco took Stars hand and walked with her through the dimensional gateway.
When the couple walked out of the portal, hand in hand, they found themselves at the "Stop and Slurp" store in Echo Creek, the late morning California sun shining brightly above them.
In the parking lot of the convenience store, a teenager sitting on the hood of his car with a keytar in hand. Oskar Greason, notoriously bad musician, and Star's former crush. Oskar suddenly looked up from fiddling with his keytar and waved at the newly appeared duo.
"Hey Star, hey Mango!" Oskar shouted in his usual as he got off the vehicle's hood and walked over to the new couple, "So how you been doing since the party, Star?" Oskar asked politely.
"It started out rough, but we defeated Toffee, this evil monster guy, but now we're doing great, in fact, Marco and I are together now," Star told the musician happily.
"That's cool Star, I'm happy for you girl, I'm glad you two worked all your issues and stuff," Oskar said in his usual laid-back tone.
He turned his head over to Marco and asked, "What's up Mango, long time, no see, how you hanging?"
"It's Marco, and I've been doing well, enjoying time with Star," He responded as he squeezed his girlfriend's hand, "I like the new hairdo, Oskar."
"Thanks, Mango." the emo thanked as he whipped his new, shortened, hair. "Have a good day you two."
Oskar then turned and walked back to his car and went back to playing with his keytar.
"When did you see Oskar during the party?" Marco asked as they started walking out of the parking lot.
"Right after I called Ponyhead, Kelly, and Janna over, we went to another party thrown by the bad kids over there," Star answered, pointing to the roof of the Stop and Slurp store, "I hung out with Oskar, trying to d/distract myself for my feelings for you, he even offered to hang out during the summer, he probably forgot about that. But that doesn't matter, because I'm gonna be spending summer with my awesome, new, boyfriend."
Star, with a grin on her face, then pulled Marco in for a sudden hug, which caused Marco to smile. Eventually, the hug turned into a kiss, one that was interrupted by another Echo Creek resident.
"Jesus you two, get a room," said the ever grinning, dark-haired, Janna Ordonia.
The couple suddenly broke apart as Star yelled in delight "Janna Banana!" before pulling her into a tight hug. After Star let go, Janna said to the couple "I see you two finally got together, I figured you would after I heard you and Jackie broke up and I was more convinced when I heard that you headed for Mewni straight after" At this point, Janna's attention had turned to Marco.
"This was inevitable Diaz, I figured you and Star would get together, known for a while." The beanie-wearing girl. "How was Mewni for you two lovebirds?"
The couple looked at each other, reluctant looks on their faces, both knowing how the other was feeling, and decided, Janna, unlike Oskar, deserved the complete story. They asked to walk and talk, which Janna obliged. Once they started, they both recounted what happened after Star left at the party. They each took turns telling their part of the tale, each from their own perspectives until they merged in the castle dungeon. Janna had remained rather composed throughout the story, but when she heard the part of Stars "death" and time in the corrupted magic realm, her mouth went agape and for once, showed a rare sign of humanity behind her uncaring and creepy veneer. Her expression remained that way until once she heard of Toffee's fate, though Marco did note a quick scoff when he revealed about punching through Toffee in revenge. Then the couple told of Marco's confession and the point of them getting together, during which Janna had a sly smile on her face, though she didn't want to admit, she found the new couple rather cute.
Once the couple had finished telling their tale (and subsequently stopped for a break), Janna was silent for a moment, taking in the epic story she had just heard. Then she spoke up and said, "Holy shit. You two have experienced more in the last two in a half weeks then I've had in like a lifetime. Unlike here, it has been soooooooo boring since you two left. Especially since I haven't been able to mess anyone else since Diaz left." the troublemaking teen confessed nudging Marco on the shoulder. "At least Mewni has stuff going on."
Star then had an idea, and before she was truly thinking, blurted out "Why don't you come to Mewni with us?"
"WAIT WHAT?" Janna and Marco screamed simultaneously, the former in excitement, the latter in confusion.
"Yeah, you can come for the summer, to squire or something," Star said in reply to the dark-haired girl.
"Um, Star can I talk to you for a sec, like away from Janna?" Marco asked his girlfriend, tugging on her sleeve.
"Sure," Star replied as they momentarily walked away from Janna.
"What are you thinking Star?" Marco said concernedly, "You know Janna loves to terrorize me!"
"Relax Marco, I'll make her shake on a deal that says if she keeps bugging you on Mewni, she'll be kicked out," Star reassured her worried boyfriend.
"Fine, but only if she agrees to it." Marco conceded as they walked back to Janna, who was leaning against a building, texting someone on her phone.
"You can come to Mewni, Janna, but on one condition," Star told the texting teen, causing her to look up from her phone, "You have to stop harassing Marco and we have to shake on it if you break the agreement, you'll be kicked off Mewni
"Ugh, fine." Janna groaned, holding up her hand and shook it with Star's. "As long as it gets me to Mewni, and teasing doesn't count, just major stuff."
Marco made a barely audible noise of worry.
"Great!" Star said in excitement, "It's settled, we'll come to get you in a few days to take you to Mewni. You sure your parents will be fine with it?"
"Yeah, I'll just tell them I'm going to Canada for the summer, and they'll let me go for sure," Janna replied confidently. Star and Marco didn't know how to respond to that, so they just ignored it.
"Ok, we gotta go get some clothes and stuff from Marco's, all his are dirty," Star said trying to end the conversation.
"That's why you aren't wearing that hoodie Diaz." Janna stated in realization, "Well, it doesn't matter, see ya later."
The beanie-wearing girl walked away in the direction of her home.
"Well let's get a move on, Marco." Star said to her grim-faced boyfriend, grabbing his hand and giving him a peck on the cheek, "And turn that frown upside down."
Not wanting to disappoint, and content to be rid of Janna for the moment, he did just that as they got the move on down an Echo Creek street.
Up ahead, on a bench, a girl with a skateboard in her lap sat enjoying the summer breeze. Jackie Lynn Thomas was taking a moment to rest on the bench. She was trying to enjoy her summer after she reluctantly broke up with her boyfriend after Star Butterfly confessed her feelings to Marco Diaz and fled to her home world. The platinum-haired teen knew it was the best option, seeing the depressed state Marco was in. She'd always figured Marco had feelings for the interdimensional princess, and that she had feelings for him. Her suspicions were confirmed with Star's confession, and her suspicions for Marco's reciprocating Star's feelings only grew when she visited Marco a week after the party.
She'd figured it'd be a good idea to let Marco have some time alone to process his feelings about Star leaving and her confession. But when she got to the Diaz household and was led to the kitchen by Mrs. Diaz, she realized her idea wasn't as good as it seemed. Marco was wallowing in the kitchen, pajamas on, his body half laying on the kitchen table, sadly eating a bowl of cereal, while the decorations from the party were still hanging up around the house. She flashed back in her mind to the conversation she had with her now ex-boyfriend.
"Hey, dude, how you been doing since the party?" Jackie had asked Marco gently.
Marco, who picked up his head slightly to look at her, and only said depressedly, "Fine."
"I can see the decorations from the party are still up, why's that?
"It's for when Star comes back, so nothing changes, and we can go back to how things were," Marco said in the same, sad tone, though picking himself up slightly and turning to face his girlfriend.
Jackie winced inside when she heard this. Almost everyone in Echo Creek knew Marco liked Star back, even if he didn't fully realize it yet. There were always whispers Jackie heard about Star and Marco being more like a couple then herself and Marco. She'd always tried to ignore it, but now she had to confront the truth, Marco liked Star back, even if he didn't fully know it himself.
"Marco, I've got something to say, it may seem sudden, but we have to break up." Jackie blurted out suddenly.
"Wait why?" the pajama-wearing boy said suddenly in response to this abrupt breakup, more awake from shock, and pulling himself up from his seat.
"Cause Marco, you obviously have feelings for Star," Jackie responded calmly.
"What, no I don't!" Marco yelled defensively.
"Yes, you do, and those feelings aren't a bad thing Marco, you two have a special relationship," Jackie clarified, "But their existence will lead to us both suffering and toxicity in our relationship. If you force yourself to stay here and with me, and deny your feelings, we'll both be miserable, and besides, you're clearly depressed without her."
Marco was silent and looked inward and reflected for a moment as Jackie stood in his kitchen awkwardly. Until he spoke up suddenly.
"You're right Jackie, I do like Star, but what should I do?" the underdressed boy stated in realization and panic.
"Go after her dude!" Jackie answered encouragingly, "You have that dimensional scissor thing, go to her dimension, tell her how you feel!"
"I will," Marco said before she pulled him in for a hug, "Thank you, Jackie"
"No problem Diaz," she responded before giving one last peck on the cheek, which made him blush. "Now go!"
"Yes ma'am," Marco answered before running for the stairs.
"And one last thing Marco, stay amazing."
Marco nodded before he ran up the stairs and out of the sight of his now ex-girlfriend.
Jackie's focus then returned to the present, where she saw something she didn't expect to see, Marco and Star walking, hand in hand, towards her.
Jackie then stood up and shouted to them. "Hey Marco, Hey Star."
Marco looked a bit nervous, but Star's face was one of joy, as she, and dragging along the boy holding her hand, started running towards her.
"Hey, Jackie!" Star yelled excitedly when she got to the skateboarding-teen before suddenly letting go of Marco's hand and pulling Jackie into a hug.
"It's so great to see you, Jackie!" Star said during the two girls' embrace.
"You too Star," the other girl responded in her usual laid-back tone.
Once the two girls broke the hug, Jackie noticed her ex-boyfriend standing back trying to avert eye contact with her.
"Hey, Marco," Jackie said in an attempt to get her exes attention, on that succeeded as Marco's eyes shifted focus to the valley girl.
"Hey um, Jackie" Marco muttered awkwardly in a barely audible voice.
As a momentary silence ensued, and Star noticed the palpable tension between the two and decided to do something about it, let them talk it out.
"Oh look!" Star piped up to break the silence, pointing over to a bush where a girl was hiding with a camera, "It's Starfan13, I should go talk to her. You two catch up while I do that."
Star used "Fantastic Exit Beam" which propelled her over to the shrubbery to leave the exes to talk.
Another momentary silence occurred until Jackie mustered up enough courage to speak up.
"I take it that you and Star are like, together now?" Jackie asked to break the awkwardness.
"Um, yeah, about five days ago," Marco said a tad uncomfortably, shuffling a bit where he stood and barely meeting Jackie's mint green gaze.
"I'm glad, dude, you two make a couple," Jackie replied, sincerity on her voice and a smile on her face.
"Do you really mean that Jackie?"
"Of course, I do Diaz!" Jackie exclaimed, "I always figured you guys liked each other, but like, never quite put it together, even when we were dating, I knew you and Star had something special going on."
"You know, I've been thinking Jackie, and I'm sorry if I was a terrible boyfriend who was always distracted by my best friend." Marco suddenly apologized.
"It's fine, dude." Jackie responding, accepting the apology, "You were a pretty standard boyfriend, but you could always make me laugh, and I do want to stay friends with you, Marco."
"That's what I want too." the usually hoodie-wearing boy responded.
The two went in for a brief hug. And after a quick moment, they broke apart and went on with their conversation.
"So Diaz, are you going to Mewni for the summer?" Jackie questioned.
"Yeah that's why I'm here, I got to get some stuff from my house," Marco answered.
"Do your parents know you were staying Mewni?" Jackie asked out of concern
"My parents know that I was staying there for a few days, but they don't know that I want to stay there over the summer." the Echo Creek boy answered
"Are you sure they'll let you stay there, bro?" The green-eyed girl wondered aloud.
"I'm kinda sure," Marco answered with unsureness on his voice and a seed of doubt planted in his mind, "They've always supported what I wanted."
"Ok, I'm glad you've got summer plans, I don't have much to do during the break dude." Jackie sighed.
"Maybe you can come to Mewni and squire or something, Janna is coming and it'd be nice to have a friend there." Marco blurted out.
"That sounds great dude!" Jackie exclaimed, "I'll ask my parents, but they've always encouraged me to take a trip to experience the world and stuff, so they'll probably let me go."
"Great, I'll have to ask Star, but she'll probably go for it," Marco responded, pleasantly surprised by her answer, and glad to be on such good terms with his ex.
Then Star came walking back with Starfan13 close behind her.
"Star told me that Starco got together," Starfan13 said in her parrot-like voice, "I'm so happy, I'm gonna go write fanfiction!"
The crazy fan then scattered away to write her stories and obsess over what she called Starco.
"So, did you two talk it out?" Star asked cheerily.
"Yeah, we did, we're cool," Jackie responded, "Marco even offered for me to come to Mewni."
"Oh really?" Star asked in surprise, quickly turning her head to Marco, and then back to the platinum-haired girl, "That was sweet Marco, and of course, you can come to Mewni, Jackie!
"Thanks, girl!" Jackie thanked the princess and picked up her skateboard, "Now will you tell me about what you've been doing the past two weeks?"
The three began to walk down the street and towards Echo Creek's residential area as Star and Marco started to reiterate what happened to the pair over the last two and a half weeks. Jackie was a respectful listener but reacted more than her dark-haired friend, with small gasps, smiles, and even a small laugh or two. By the time the couple had finished, Jackie stood slack-jawed, in shock and awe with what had happened to the princess and the Earth boy.
"Wow…" Jackie muttered, stunned by the events on Mewni in the last two weeks, "I'm glad you two are ok. What you guys went through was enough excitement for an entire lifetime."
"Do you still want to come to Mewni?" Star questioned concernedly, "I'd understand if you didn't want to anymore."
"Nah, I still wanna come, it sounds like everything turned out cool in the end," Jackie assured the interdimensional girl.
"It did," Marco and Star said simultaneously, squeezing each other's hand, "It definitely did."
At that point, the three had reached the front lawn of the Diaz household, the disappearance of Star's room still visible.
"Well, this is where I leave you, dudes." the skater girl told her friends, putting down her board on the ground. "When will you come to take me to Mewni?"
"In, like, a few days," Star responded, "Pack up some stuff for Mewni or something, and Marco will text you when we're coming."
"Cool, Star, Marco, see you then," the valley girl replied as she got on her board and skated away.
"Well, that went better than I thought it would," Marco said to Star as Jackie rolled away down the sidewalk.
"I'm glad you two are still friends," Star said as the two started up the Diaz's front walkway, "Now let's go to see your parents."
The pair got to the Diaz's door and Marco knocked.
"Coming!" a masculine voice.
Suddenly the door swung open and Rafael Diaz stepped out and pulled Star and Marco into a bone-crushing hug.
"Mijo, Star!" Rafael yelled in joy as he was holding the teenagers in his arms. "It is so good to see you two!"
"It's good to see you too dad." Marco grunted out while his father was squeezing him, "But can you please let go? You're crushing my spine."
"Oh sorry." Mr. Diaz apologized as he let go of his son and the Mewni teen and the three walked into the house
Waiting in the front room of the Diaz's abode was Angelica Diaz, who gasped and immediately ran over to the newly arrived teens and pulled Marco into a tight hug.
"Marco!" Angie cried out as she embraced her son," I missed you!"
"I did too, mom, I did too," Marco said as he reciprocated the affection.
After a moment, the Earth mother broke the hug and turned her attention to the girl who had lived in her house for the past year.
"Star it's so good to see you!" Angie said as she pulled Star into her next hug, "Though, it is little surprising after how you left after the End of the Year party."
"It's great to see you too, Mrs. Diaz," Star replied as the two reunited in their embrace.
"So, Star, what are you doing back here?" Mr. Diaz asked after Star and Angie broke their hug.
"Well, Marco needs something from here, so we came back from Mewni," Star answered.
"Needs?" Angie wondered aloud, "What do you mean needs? Aren't you two coming back?"
"No mom we're not, I'm going to Mewni to be Star," Marco responded, taking Star's hand, "Because, we are together now.
His parent's faces both morphed into expressions of joy and shock as they both pulled the teens into a group hug.
"Oh, Mijo, this is muy fantástico!" Rafael said to his son as squeezed his family in a bear hug, "I'm so happy for you two!"
"You two will make a wonderful couple," Angie added.
The group broke apart and continued their discussion.
"Why don't you two just come back to Earth, enjoy the summer here?" The patriarch of the Diazes asked the recently arrived couple.
"I'd love to do that Mr. Diaz, but my parents said that I had to stay and Mewni and keep up with my dumb Royal Duties," Star explained to the man while holding his son's hand "And having Marco there would make it so much better."
"I understand that Star, I really do," Angie told the princess in a sympathetic tone, "But Marco can't leave our care to go live on some other dimension, one that sounded dangerous from what Marco texted me, even to be with his girlfriend and you can come to visit whenever you want. But he's only fourteen, and I'm his mother!"
"So, what does that matter?" Marco interjected, "Half the students who came to live with were the same age or younger and weren't with their parents. Heck, Star was only fourteen when she came to live with us."
"Yeah, and Marco can hold his own pretty darn well," Star vouched, "He helped take down Ludo when he took over my castle and punched right through the evil lizard that once kidnapped him when he returned and Marco thought I was gone, and now that guy is gone and Mewni is safe."
"And on top of that, whenever Ludo attacked you never had a problem with me fighting him, or whenever something magical happened you batted an eye," Marco told his mother in a surprisingly firm and powerful voice, "Like when my arm turned into a monster or I grew that weird Naysaya thing out of my neck. Do you know who was there all those times? Star was, my partner in crime, and I won't be separated from her. I'll be just as safe on Mewni as I ever was here."
There was a slightly stunned silence from all the others in the household, they rarely saw this more dominant side of Marco. Star was flattered and shocked at Marco standing up to his mother for himself and her.
Mr. Diaz suddenly broke the silence by sighing and saying, "He makes a good point Angie."
After another moment Angie spoke
"Fine, you can go to stay on Mewni with Star, but there are certain conditions you have to agree to go." The Matriarch of the Diaz's reluctantly told her child, "First, you have to text me or your father daily, second, you have to come to visit us weekly and have dinner with us, third, you have to come back here if Mewni ever gets extra dangerous. Got it?"
"Those are fine by me," Marco said in his usual tone.
"Great!" Star responded to Marco's agreement to the terms, "Now let's go get your stuff, Marco."
"Ve más despacio you two, can you tell us how you got together and what happened to you on Mewni?" Rafael requested of the couple.
The two started to tell the tale of the two's time after Toffee's return as they all went upstairs to Marco's room, they packed stuff for Marco's stay on Mewni, though they did leave out a few details. The Diaz's helped pack and listened respectfully and held in their reactions till after the duo finished. Once they did, Marco was almost fully packed.
Rafael displayed his reaction.
"Oh Mijo, your confession was muy dulce and romántico."
"Sweet and romantic," Marco whispered in clarification into Star's ear.
"It reminds me of when your father proposed to me," Angie added with fondness on her voice, which made Marco blush tomato red, which made Star giggle. "Is that on the way?"
"What, no!" Marco answered defensively as he blushed even harder which made Star giggle again.
"Not for a while Mrs. Diaz," Star told the woman cheekily as she grabbed Marco's arm, and Marco gave her a slightly confused look.
"Well, you are all packed, Mijo," Mr. Diaz told his son as he put his last bag down next to the others on the floor.
"Thanks, Dad," Marco thanked, "Now let's go get the laser puppies and head out."
Star then picked up all of Marco's bags and levitated them with a spell.
The four walked out of Marco's room and downstairs to the waiting laser puppies.
Marco went to leash the puppies while Angie whispered something in Star's ear.
"He's a special boy, Star, don't lose him."
"Don't worry, I won't," Star whispered back.
"All right Star!" Marco called to his girlfriend, "Let's go."
"Don't think you're leaving without a hug, busters," Angie told the couple, as she went over and pulled them into a hug, which Rafael joined.
"We love you," The Diaz parents told the two simultaneously.
"We love you too," the young couple replied.
They all broke apart and the teens walked out the front door that Rafael opened for them.
"Bye Marco, Bye Star," Rafael said to to the couple who were holding the puppies leashes and dragging the floating bags behind them.
"Bye," Angie told them from the front door as they were outside.
The older couple were still waving on the doorstep and yelling bye to the younger couple as Marco pulled out his dimensional scissors and made a portal and went through it with his dogs, bags, and his girlfriend.
When the couple stepped out of the portal, they were in Star's room back on Mewni.
"Whew." Star sighed as she let Marco's bags fall to the floor and put her wand away, "What a day."
"You can say that again," Marco quipped as he went to lay on Star's bed with the laser puppies following.
"It was great to see some of our Echo Creek friends again," Star told her boyfriend as she joined him on the bed, "I'm glad Jackie and Janna are coming here."
"I'm still not sure Janna should be coming to Mewni," Marco said concernedly, turning his head to look at her.
"Trust me, at the first sign of her harassment, I'll send her right home," Star assured the worried boy laying beside her.
"Fine," Marco agreed reluctantly, "But Star, now that I'm staying here full time, where should I sleep? Cause I am not staying on that crappy guest room bed another night."
"I have a solution you're gonna like," Star answered, grabbing Marco's hand and jumped off the bed and ran into the hall, her best friend and the puppies in tow.
Star pulled out her wand, aimed it at the space next to her room, and blasted it with Sparkle Glitter Bomb Expand, which created a door, one that was identical to Marco's room's door on Earth.
"Welcome," Star said as she opened the door to the newly formed room, "To your new, old, room!"
"Wow, my Earth room," Marco marveled excitedly as he, Star, and the puppies walked, "I can't believe it. This is amazing, Star!
"Kneel," Star commanded suddenly as the Laser Puppies obeyed her.
"Wait, what?" Marco questioned the command.
"I haven't officially made you my squire yet, so kneel so I can do that," Star explained to her confused boyfriend
"Oh ok," Marco said before obeying the command.
'I hereby declare that you, Marco Ubaldo Diaz, shall henceforth be my royal squire and partner," Star declared as a cone of light enveloped her and the squire and she tapped her wand to his shoulders, "To stay by my side in times of peace or danger, as my most trusted confidant, advisor, and partner. To go clubbing with me even when he's too tired, to share his late-night nachos, to let me shower him with smooches, but most importantly to be my very best friend and boyfriend, so long as we both shall live. Amen. Do you accept?"
"Of course, I do," Marco answered before getting to his feet.
"Great!" Star said as she pulled Marco into a hug and a quick kiss, "Now let's go enjoy the rest of the day and go make ourselves some nachos."
"Yes, Star," the newly made squire replied joyfully, before grabbing his girlfriend's hand and going to the castle kitchen to make them a snack.
Author's Notes
Well here is the new chapter of this tale, I've been cooking up this story and idea for a while now and thanks to the help of Lordcornwalis (Of "In The Pale Starlight), Blackwolfwriting (Of the "Sign of the Moon" Series and "Royal Secrets), ThDorkMagnet (Of "Light of the Sun and Stars"), KPRS4EVER (Of "When Two Worlds Collide"), and Ronaldreagan (Of "Forgotten Ventures"), all of whom works are amazing and you should check out, that idea became reality.
This story is kinda the way I would have done Star vs Season 3 and subsequently, 4, fixing issues with less time wasted on pointless ships (more on the main plot), character development, better thought out/well-developed plot, extra time for lore (plus some of my own I've been writing), a better villain (than Mina), some fan-favorite characters in a bigger role. There is A LOT more of this story to come. The fic will try to stick to the OG lore as possible, with a few additions, but there may be slight differences on purpose or accident. This story will have no scheduled update, but I will post I will start responding to reviews/questions with the next chapter, and please give me any criticisms, I'm always looking to improve. Thank you to everyone reading. See ya next upload (or if you DM me with questions

2020.05.23 21:59 Quirky-Motor What everyone has wrong about Ridgway. EXTENSIVE write up on the crimes of Gary Ridgway, misconceptions about him and his crimes, a few comparisons to Bundy, and profiles of women murdered, still missing, and unidentified. Part 2 of 2.

Hello everyone. A few months ago, I posted an extensive write up on the DeOrr Kunz case and later the Asha Degree case with several other missing people’s cases sprinkled in between, which many readers seemed to enjoy. Those can be found here: https://www.reddit.com/UnresolvedMysteries/comments/fcmvmz/extensive_summary_regarding_the_disappearance_of/
Today, I wanted to do a similar long form write up but this time, I wanted to switch gears and talk about Ridgway and his victims. This is part 2 of 2. Please read part 1 first: https://www.reddit.com/UnresolvedMysteries/comments/gpbcll/what_everyone_has_wrong_about_ridgway_extensive/
Carol Ann Christensen was the 22-year-old single mother of a five-year-old girl. She lived with her daughter in a mobile home park near the SeaTac strip. Carol Ann was happy because she had finally landed a new job after a few months of searching. She got a job as a waitress at a bar and grill only three blocks from her house. Because she had no car, she was happy to have a job she could walk to. Carol dropped off her daughter with her parents. She disappeared after her shift walking home on the SeaTac strip. Carol Ann had no none connections to the scene. No criminal record, no addiction, no hitchhiking. Gary Ridgway later confessed that he abducted and killed Carol Ann to confuse investigators. Carrie Ann Rois who used the street name Silver Champagne came from a broken home full of abuse and negativity. She became a chronic runaway with a criminal record. She ran away, bounced from relative to relative and began working on the Strip even though she was still attending high school. Carrie was musical and played the flute in the marching band. After a few years of estrangement, Carrie reconciled with her mother once her mother left her abusive husband. The mother and daughter spent Christmas ’82 together and her mother told her she loved her no matter what. It was their last Christmas together; Carrie vanished six months later in June 1983. Martina T. Authorlee came from a West German family who had moved to the United States several years earlier. She dreamed of joining the military like her father, but was discharged from basic training for medical reasons. She moved to the Portland area after that but called home to Tacoma several times a month and always on holidays. Her parents didn’t know what her job was and had no idea she had a record for prostitution; they were just happy she was still coming home and in contact with them regularly. When Christmas 1983 rolled around with no call from Martina she was reported missing. No one knew she was working in Seattle at the time. Cheryl Lee Wims grew up in the Central district of Seattle not too far from the strip, but not near it either. At 18 her only “problem” was that she often skipped her classes at school but she was successfully holding down a job as a busser at a restaurant. She wasn’t known to prostitute but she did struggle with addiction. She vanished in May ’83. Years later it would be revealed that the man Cheryl was seeing at the time was actually a pimp. Yvonne Shelly Antosh was a Canadian girl with thick Auburn hair, who came to Seattle hearing the money was better in the USA. She was last seen by a friend at the end of May 1983 on the Pacific high way south. Constance Naon was 20 and worked two jobs, one at a sausage factory and one walking the streets. She made lots of money from both jobs but drug addiction ate away her cash. She called her boyfriend to say she was going to pick up her paycheck and would come over in twenty minutes but she never made it. In June detectives found her abandoned car, but there was no trace of Connie. Kelly Ware’s parents remember her as a happy girl. She was last seen in Seattle’s central district in the same area Cheryl Wims disappeared. She was only 22 or 23 when she was last seen. Little information is available. April Buttram was a 17-year-old girl from Spokane. As a teenager her parents described her as a party girl who loved being social but unfortunately had a taste for drugs and alcohol. One day April and some girlfriends headed to Seattle for a weekend to let loose. April was planning on coming back to Spokane because she was due to inherit $10,000 on her 18th birthday from a relative. April was last seen in the Rainier valley area of Seattle, after her friends left her. They never saw her again and she never return to Spokane to collect her money. Debora May Abernathy, her boyfriend, and their three-year-old son, had moved to Seattle from Texas, hoping to get a fresh start. They rented a room in a house owned by an old lady near the Seattle airport. Debora left one night to run an errand but never returned home. The young mother was 26.
Tina Marie Thompson disappeared in July 1983, but was not reported missing until much later. She was 22. Very little information is available in her case. Tracy Winston was close to her family and was known to be athletic. She was the first girl allowed on the boys’ little league team at her school. Her dad remembers her as a great pitcher with a good arm. Tracy liked baseball but when she was in high school, she played on basketball for the school instead. Tracy moved away from home as a young teen. At 19 she was arrested for the first time for loitering, (something prostitution was often lowered to). The jailers described her as a “scared rabbit.” She called her parents from jail crying and told them she was going to turn her life around, get her GED, and change her ways. Tracy called a cab driver she knew in Seattle who worked near the jail. The cab driver drove by and talked to Tracy outside. He told her he had a passenger to pick up near the airport but would be back for her in 45 minutes. When he returned, Tracy was gone, like she had been swallowed by the streets of downtown Seattle. (The cab driver called the police and has been cleared in Tracy’s case.) Maureen Sue Feeney at age 19 had never had a boyfriend or even been on a date. She got a job working as a secretary at a Christian school and moved out of her parents place for the first time in her life. A few months later she moved to the central district of Seattle lured by the cheap rent and got a job nearby as a daycare worker. Maureen’s friends reported that Maureen had a history of depression so they called her often to check up on her. Her friends were surprised to learn that Maureen once shy, conservative, and careful seemed to be drinking heavily. Soon Maureen had her first boyfriend, a man she met at the bus stop. She told her friends that her boyfriend had “lots of ways to make money” but her friends were worried about this new man in her life. A week before she turned 20, Maureen left the house and vanished. Pammy Avent street name Annette, spent her time in Portland and Seattle. She was known to be good friends with another girl named Keli Kay McGinnis. Because she moved around, it took a while for friends to realize she was missing. Pammy was last seen in the Rainier valley area of Seattle in late October 1983. Mary Sue Bello at 26 had been in the scene for a long time. Her family remembers her to be streetwise and funny. You could never be mad at Mary Sue very long because she could always make you laugh. Mary was a great cook who loved the holidays because of all the delicious treats she could make. After a few years estranged from her mother and grandparents, Mary Sue had come back in to their lives and was trying to straighten out. She told her mom that she had no intentions of getting a “straight” job because she liked the money but did want to get clean. Mary Sue signed up for a methadone program and called her mother every other day to keep on track with her sobriety. At one point she called the green river task force to report a weird John. Although the man did not seem dangerous to her, she apparently saw a knife collection in his house. He drove an older station wagon and lived off military road. In October 1983 Mary Sue Bello left her mother’s trailer south of Seattle never to be seen again. Delise Louise Plager went by the name Missy and life was sad from the start. Born dead she was resuscitated but had health problems for the rest of her life. Missy and her twin brother left the hospital and arrived home with their birth mother who drank heavily and disregarded her children. The twins were taken away and were soon placed with different families. Missy briefly lived with her adoptive parents on a ranch where it soon became obvious that she suffered from several disabilities. She was then placed with a family who had more experience with special needs children although she saw her initial adoptive parents regularly. According to Barbara, Missy’s second house mom, Missy loved deeply but struggled in school. As an adult Missy tracked down her birth family who wanted nothing to do with her, breaking her heart further. Missy had two children but she began using drugs and walking the streets to make money. She placed her children into the care of an older woman, and old friend named Maia and walked into the night. Maia reported her missing when Missy did not return. Kimberly Nelson used so many aliases that the task force thought that three women had gone missing when it was actually just one. Born Kimberly Nelson she worked the streets as Star and told others still her name was Tina Tomson. Her parents reported Kim Nelson missing, her boyfriend/pimp reported Tina Tomson missing, and some friends reported that a working girl named Star had gone missing; at first no one realized they were the same person. The twenty-year-old was six feet tall, so many people remembered her. She was working with her friend Paige on Pacific highway south when she disappeared. The next day a man in a red truck with a white canopy pulled up to Paige and asked where her tall friend was. The man unnerved Paige for some reason. She reported her friend missing and reported the tip of the man in the red truck. Kim Nelson was four months pregnant when she disappeared on Halloween 1983. Lisa L. Yates grew up living with her much older sister and her sister’s family in the Seattle area. Lisa loved her niece who was only ten years her junior. Her niece always thought of her as a cool, pretty, sophisticated, streetwise older sister. The last thing Lisa did was promise her niece they would go on a picnic and maybe go shopping at the mall. Lisa never picked up her niece and vanished at age 19 two days before Christmas 1983. Mary Exzetta West was a high school student at 16 years old. She lived with her aunt in the Rainier neighborhood of Seattle. Mary was a shy girl with a quick smile who always made it home by curfew or called if she would be late. She was six months pregnant but not yet showing. Mary left the house one Monday during the mid-morning and disappeared early in 1984. Cindy Ann Smith had left her home in South Seattle as a teenager and moved to sunny California. Her mom always worried about her and how she was making money, so it was a great surprise when Cindy called saying she was moving back to Seattle. Her mom sent her money and she traveled north. After getting home she decided to walk to visit her brother at his work. Cindy was last seen on Pacific Highway south in 1984. She disappeared before she could spend even one night with her family. She was only 17. Patricia Barczak at 19 was an excellent cook and baker who lived in Bellevue, Washington. In 1986 she was enrolled in a culinary class and hoped to get a job someday as a wedding cake decorator. Patricia had a lousy boyfriend who bummed off of her and often slept on the couch at her place. Patricia disappeared one day and when her mother found out she never picked up her last paycheck from the doughnut shop, she reported her missing. Patricia was not initially considered a Green River victim because her boyfriend was always the prime suspect as he continued to live in her apartment and did not report her missing. Her skull was found in a cluster with other victims and later interviews would reveal that Patricia was last seen on Pacific Highway south, near the airport. Roberta Hays Bobby Jo to her family, was a free spirit who at age 20 traveled and worked up and down the west coast. She loved her family and made sure she was always around for the holidays. She was also known as a faithful friend. Even the cops who had arrested Bobby Jo remembered her as polite and bubbly. She disappeared from Aurora Avenue north in 1987.
Marta Reeves mother of four but estranged from her husband and their children, was 36 years old in 1990. Marta’s last few years had been plagued with cocaine addiction. Her life and family disintegrated and a desperate Marta was soon working on the streets. She was last heard from when she called her ex-husband looking for money. She disappeared from Seattle’s central district. Patricia Yellow Robe’s grew up on the Rocky Boys’ Indian reservation in Montana with 9 siblings. Her younger siblings loved their sister who they described as ‘always a lot of fun’. Trish moved around a lot as an adult but would swoop back in to see her family unexpectedly. Tragically, Trish struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol and was thus unpredictable. In the summer before her death, Trish was visiting her family home when she told her sister she was planning on getting help with her addiction and wanted to go to rehab or something similar. Trish never got the chance to get clean. She died in 1998 at 38 years old.
And often forgotten as victims 50, 51, 52- The unborn babies of Mary Exzetta West, Mary Bridgett Meehan, and Kimberly Nelson whose lives were stolen when Ridgway killed their mothers.
Links
The following 3 women have been linked to Ridgway almost conclusively but are technically still missing. I believe Ridgway has confessed to the following three women’s cases but without corroborating evidence or bodies he has not been charged.
Kase Anne Lee was a petite red headed 16-year-old who lived in the same building as Terry Milligan. She was originally from Spokane and worked a few hours weekly at a photo shop. Her husband often beat her up and she worked the streets near the airport. Her husband, Anthony “Pretty Tony” Lee, was even briefly looked at as the killer. She left one evening at 11:30 pm to buy groceries and vanished into the night. Tragically, the only available photos of Kase (pronounced like Casey sometimes written Kasee) are her mugshots. Her body has never been found.
Patricia Osborn left her home on Aurora Avenue in extreme north Seattle to meet a date. Earlier she had been heard arranging the date on the phone. Patricia’s family lived in Oregon. She had three arrests all in 1983 that they had no idea about. When she didn’t call home during the holidays, she was reported missing by her family. By that time, she had not been seen in over three months.
Keli Kay McGinnis had a life one could call peculiar. She was born to a young mother who worked as a musician and the pair lived in apartments in the Seattle area. When Keli was a few years old her mother married a millionaire business man, and the three lived in a two-million-dollar mansion on Queen Anne Hill. Keli and her parents owned horses, yachts, and nice cars. The took lavish trips and Keli loved her father, who was actually her step dad. A few years down the road her mother and step father split and the pair went back to living in apartments with her mom working long hours as a singer. It was a weird life for the now aged eleven-year-old McGinnis. Years later at age 15 Keli fell in love with a boy at school and became pregnant. Keli’s family did not approve of her African American boyfriend so the couple moved in together. Keli and her boyfriend traveled the west coast with Keli working the streets. Keli usually worked with her best friend; a young teenager named Pammy Advent whose street name was Annette. Keli’s background gave her an edge in the business and she worked at fancy hotels and attracted wealthier johns. According to some of the women who worked with Keli, McGinnis was able to pull in 2-3x what they did on a typical night. Keli left her home one night in South Seattle to work but never came home. Her boyfriend called the police to report her missing. He was adamant Keli would never abandon their toddler daughter, who was later adopted out to a family when McGinnis never returned home. Her body has never been found, but Ridgway believes he killed her.
The following three women are Jane Does who were arrested under false names before disappearing in Seattle, and are still not identified today. It is possible some or all of them women are Green River Victims. (this is a very confusing section so please bear with me.)
Linda Louise Jackson was arrested in King County in the early 1980s using the alias Wylynda L. Wells. In 2012, King County authorities tried to contact Wylynda who they learned was actually Linda, to testify in a trial. When her family was tracked down, they reported they had not heard from Linda in “well over 10 years.” As it turns out Jackson has not been seen in King County (or anywhere else) since early 1983 but was never reported missing. If you know her whereabouts or associates please contact King county authorities. She is a native American female with brownish-black hair and brown eyes. A photo is provided below.
Michelle has not been seen King County since December 1980. She went by the first name Michelle but this may not be her legal name. She also had ties to the New York area. She appears to be African American with light to medium skin tone, shortish brown-black hair and brown eyes. If you know her whereabouts, legal name, or associates please contact King county authorities.
Both women’s photos can be seen here: https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/sheriff/about-us/enforcement/investigations/green-river.aspx
Angie is a young woman who has possibly been missing since Summer 1983. She is only known as Angie, and she was a friend Green River Victim Tammie Lilies. Angie was from the Marysville area and is described as a white female, 17 to 18 years of age at the time of contact, 5' 4" in height, 110 pounds, with curly shoulder length light brown hair and greenish-blue eyes. She's been described as "very pretty" and "a Barbie doll." She was wearing blue jeans when she was last seen. No photo is available. If you know her whereabouts, legal name, or associates please contact King county authorities. (I have wondered if she is Angie Girdner down below but descriptions don’t match up perfectly and authorities seem to doubt this. She is also possibly Angela Meeker from Tacoma)
More information can be found hereà https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/sheriff/about-us/enforcement/investigations/green-river.aspx
The following women have been linked to Ridgway pretty conclusively and are known to be deceased but he has not been charged with their murders. In fact, he specifically denies killing the following three women.
Amina Agisheff was a 36-year-old immigrant from Russia and a working mother of several children. She left her home and was waiting for the bus when she disappeared going to either visit her mother or coming home from visiting with her mother. She disappeared July 7th 1982. Agisheff’s body was found near North Bend in an area very close to other victims of Ridgway. Agisheff was found clothed or partially clothed, and her cause of death was a possible gunshot wound although this could not be conclusively proven. It is unknown if she was sexually assaulted. For years, Agisheff was considered to be the first Green River Victim due to where she was found even though she had no ties to the “scene” and was not known to use drugs or hitchhike. Ridgway always denies killing Agisheff, but as demonstrated above not all women killed by Ridgeway were part of the scene. However, Amina’s death varies significantly from Ridgway’s typical pattern.
Theories:
It is a coincidence that Amina’s body was found near other victims and she was the victim of another killer.
She differed from the pattern because she was Ridgway’s first victim and this his method was substantially different.
She was not Ridgway’s first victim and varied from the typical because Ridgeway’s victims were more varied than initially thought. Some have speculated that Ridgway offered Amina a ride somewhere and she took it because she knew him, however tangentially. This has never been proved.
Tammie Liles was the from the Everett/ Snohomish area north of Seattle. Tammie’s family last heard from her in 1982 and she was reporting missing in 1983. Friends or family believed that had contact with Tammie in May 1984 when she called and said she was living in Tacoma and was going to get married. The police think it is possible the girl on the phone wasn’t actually Tammie, or that her family was confused on the date of the call. Tammie was removed from the missing persons list only to be reported missing again, this time for good in 1988. At this point, Tammie who was known to work as a prostitute in Seattle was linked to the GRK but her body was not identified until 1998. She was not known to work anywhere in Oregon and it has been suggested she was killed in King county and transported to Oregon after death. (Her body was found in Oregon.) Tammie is listed on some lists as an official or unofficial/ unproven Green River Victim, on some lists as a possible victim while she is left off of other lists entirely.
Angela Girdner went by the name Angie and was a straight A student at a private high school. As a teen, Angela fell in with the wrong crowd and ran away from home. She was reported missing in 1982 and died sometime that year or in early 1983. Her remains were found with Tammie Liles’ remains. Both girls were found close (within a mile) to the bodies of Denise Bush and Shirley Sherrill near Portland Oregon. Police do not believe Angela ever traveled to Washington state making Angela the only victim who may have been both abducted and killed outside of the state of Washington. This may be why Ridgway denies involvement as his plea deal states he is eligible for death penalty if he committed crimes outside of King County.
Theories: There is a theory that Tammie and Angela were killed by someone else and the placement of their bodies was a coincidence.
The following women are missing or were found dead and may be Green River Victims but are not on the official list.
Angela Mae Meeker was almost 14 when she disappeared in 1979. She was planning on going to the mall in Tacoma and then going to a birthday party when she vanished. Angela was seen later that evening at a party but never surfaced again. Angela ran away from home regularly and often hitchhiked around the Tacoma area. Angela’s parents believe she met with foul play when someone she hitched a ride with killed her. Angela Meeker is not Jane Doe B-10. Little information is available in the case.
Andria Bailey was 15 or 16 when she went missing sometime in 1978 or 1979. The exact date of her disappearance is unknown. Andria lived with her grandmother in Spanaway, south of Seattle. Andria’s parents were in the military and lived in Germany. Andria was reported missing in 1989 when her mom called the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children saying that Andria had been missing for over 10 years. NCMEC called law enforcement. In 1995, someone (possibly NCMEC) called the Green River task force and gave them Andria’s name to compare to does in the case. No one knows if Andria was involved in drugs, prostitution, or running away. Her grandmother cannot remember the last time she saw Andria or what she was doing. Apparently after Andria went missing her grandmother called her parents and Andria’s father flew to Washington state to look for her in the local area but she was never officially reported missing. Andria’s mother and grandmother have since passed away. In the one article available about this case, Andria’s relative submitted a DNA sample to match potential does. Little information is available.
Louise Sanders was last heard from in February 1981. She called a friend to make lunch plans but then canceled those plans because she was meeting a “date.” She disappeared from downtown Seattle in 1981. Louise was 35 years old at the time but a hormonal disorder made her look like a teenager still. She worked as a prostitute in downtown Seattle at the time. Little information is available in her case.
Diana Munyon ran away from home in Mississippi in 1981. Her family last heard from her in May 1982 when she called from Fontana, California. She was only 16 years old at the time. Her family contacted the Green River Task force years later, both due to her background and because Diana bears a resemblance to one of the Jane Does Ridgway plead guilty to murdering. Her case is being investigated by Seattle authorities. Little information is available.
Kristi Vorak left her foster home in Tacoma, Washington in October 1982 age 13. After leaving home she may have been seen at a bus depot in downtown Seattle. Kristi did not have a history of running away or prostitution but she did frequent areas of Seattle and Tacoma known to be part of the scene. Kristi’s mom thinks it is possible Kristi is a transient in the Seattle area or left to start a new life but law enforcement believes she met with foul play and is a possible Green River victim according to some articles. Little information is available in her case.
Patricia Ann LeBlanc was 15 when she ran away in 1983. Patti had a record for prostitution and in August 1983 was arrested and sent to a youth shelter. Four days later the youth shelter took a field trip to the Seattle Center (a museum where the Space Needle is at) and she ran away and disappeared. Patti’s foster mom said that Patti ran away from whatever living situation she was put in, but Patti still called her foster mom often. Those phone calls stopped in August 1983. Patti may have an unspecified medical condition. Little information is available in her case.
Pollyanne Jean Carter last seen leaving a friend’s home in Graham, Washington near Tacoma. She had called her parents and said she was headed home, but Pollyanne ran away often and frequented the city of Tacoma. After her disappearance her sister told law enforcement that Pollyanne worked as a prostitute in Tacoma, something her parents did not know. She was last seen in 1984 at age 15.
Diane Nguyen Robbins left her home in the Eastern Washington town of Kennewick to travel to Seattle in Summer 1985 at age 13. Diane had no history of prostitution but had recently began hanging out with an older woman named Molly A. Purdin, aged 21. Molly and Diane went to Seattle and Diane was reported as a runaway when she did not return home. Molly and Diane were last seen in Seattle or Bellevue on June 18th. Molly was found murdered a month later in North King County but there was no sign of Diane. Law enforcement believes Diane and Molly’s disappearances were due to a serial killer but have not specified Ridgway. Snohomish PD is handling the case and says both cases are considered cold.
Molly A. Purdin sometimes went by Molly Purdin-Clary. She lived in Kennewick, Washington before going missing. Read Diana Robbins summary above for more information. Little information is available.
Virginia Rambus was a Seattle woman who went missing at age 19 from south Seattle, Washington in 1985. Virginia left her apartment to visit a coworker who lived in the same complex. They were planning on going to a party together in the Rainier neighborhood, but Virginia never made to her friend’s unit. At the time of her disappearance, serial killer Jesse Pratt also lived in her apartment complex. He is the prime suspect in her disappearance. Virginia had no links to prostitution or drugs and held down a steady professional job. Her case is included in this piece only because of where she lived and the time period she disappeared.
Doris Mulhern went missing from the SeaTac strip in 1987 when she was 21 years old. She and her boyfriend traveled all around the country; they were originally from Michigan. Both lived transient, high-risk lifestyles. Mulhern’s boyfriend took her to the mall and he never saw her again. The last time she was seen, she was walking down the SeaTac strip.
Margaret Diaz was 31 when she was last seen in Tacoma in 1988. Margaret had a high-risk lifestyle and frequently worked in the Hilltop area of Tacoma. She moved around a lot but tried to keep in contact with her three kids regularly. That contact stopped in 1988 and she has been missing ever since.
Deborah Yvonne Wims sister of Cheryl Wims was last seen shopping on the SeaTac strip in 1990. She worked the strip in 1990 and disappeared when she was 31 years old. Her car was found parked on Pacific Highway south but there was no Deborah. Little information is available in her case.
Darci Warde was 16 years old in 1990. She was located by police in Seattle who returned to her parents- she had been reported missing previously. She immediately ran away again and vanished. Darci had links to prostitution. Law enforcement believes Darci’s disappearance was due to a serial killer but have not specified Ridgway. Little information is available in her case.
Cora McGuirk was 22 in July 1991. She was the young mother of three who worked at a gift shop and was an enrolled student at the University of Washington. Cora went from being a typical working mother and student to suddenly dropping out of sight at for one-two days at a time. Cora asked her aunt to look after her children in case anything bad happened to her, something that worried her aunt. The pieces fell into place when Cora brought home a new boyfriend who was using hard drugs. It is unknown if Cora was using but her aunt thought it was a likely explanation for her behavior. Cora left her children with her aunt and said she would be gone for a bit. She never returned and her abandoned car was found parked on Aurora Avenue north. Cora’s first priority was always her children even in those last few chaotic months of her life she made sure her kids had a safe place to be. Her family does not think she disappeared of her own accord. Cora’s aunt adopted and raised her three children the oldest of which, Martell Webster grew up to play professional basketball for the Portland Trailblazers. He was 4 when he last saw his mother.
Cases with loose or former links to the Green River Killer. Some of these women are mentioned in one book or one source only. Some women’s names are believed to be aliases which is why information is sparse. My researched has yielded little information on several of the women below.
Leann Virginia Wilcox died in late 1981. She fits the Ridgway profile to a tee, and was found near other dump sites but DNA on her body belongs to an unknown man, not Ridgway. GRK is not the prime suspect in her murder but it is a possibility. Initially on the Green River list, Wilcox’s case is no longer considered a Ridgway murder.
Theresa Kline died in 1982. She was in her 20s at the time and was known to hitchhike. Initially on the Green River list, Kline’s case is no longer considered a Green River homicide. Little information is available. My research has yielded little information on Theresa’s case, her death may not be a murder and her name may be an alias.
Debra Kay King disappeared from Tacoma in July 1982 when she was only 24. Little information is available in her case but foul play is suspected. My research has yielded little information on Debra’s case, her name may be an alias.
Laronda Marie Bronson disappeared November 19, 1982 from Portland, Oregon. The 18-year-old was last seen at a bus stop. Laronda had ties to prostitution and the King County Sherriff’s office is the investigating agency in her case.

Jacqueline L. Sexton a Portland woman who worked as a prostitute disappeared in December 1984. Her body was found 3 days later. (This info is available in only one book on Ridgway- no other information is available.) My research has yielded little information on Sexton’s case, her name may be an alias.

Robyn was found dead from an undetermined cause later in a wooded area. Robyn was found in Snohomish county in 1988. Ridgway is a suspect in her case.
Jennifer Burnetto, 32 had also fallen prey to addiction. Jennifer worked the streets of Tacoma in 1988. She was found dead from stab wounds in Snohomish county near the body of Robyn Kenworthy. Ridgway is a suspect in her case.
Tracey Wooten washed up on a beach in Tacoma at age 26 in 1990. Tracey had a history of drug use and prostitution. Tragically, Law Enforcement has been unable to find any friends or family. My research has yielded little information on Tracey’s case, her name may be an alias.
Anna Lee Chebetnoy was last seen at a Puyallup shopping center in 1990, the same one Kim Delange disappeared from. Her body was later found in Enumclaw, only 100 feet from Kim Delange’s body. Ridgway was known to leave bodies in Enumclaw in the past. Little information is available in her case.
Tia Hicks was a 20-year-old who struggled with addiction and worked as a prostitute on Aurora Avenue North in Seattle. Tia was found dead from an undetermined cause in a car in 1991. There is a suspect in her murder, if she was murdered. Her death is a still a mystery.
Heather Marie Kinchen disappeared in 1991. She was living in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood when she disappeared at age 14. The Florida girl’s remains were found in July 1991 in North Bend, Washington. Little information is available.
Sarah Marshlene Habakangas disappeared in 1991. She was working on the Pacific Highway south when she was last seen at age 17. Her remains were found in July 1991 in North Bend, Washington. Little information is available.
Nicole French aged 19 disappeared in 1992. She was good friends with Sarah Habakangas. Her remains were found in North Bend, Washington near the remains of Heather Kinchen and Sarah Habakangas. Little information is available.
Anitra Renee Mulwee was last seen at a New Year’s Eve party in 2000/2001, but she never made it home to Tacoma. Anitra’s body was found a few weeks later near a former dump spot of the Green River Killer. Despite the location of the body, there is no evidence that a crime occurred or that Anitra’s death was a homicide. Anitra did have ties to the scene as she had several drug and alcohol related offenses in her background. That particular dumping spot had been discovered by investigators years earlier, meaning that if Anitra was a victim of Ridgway, he would have dumped her body in place regularly surveilled by law enforcement, something he was not known to do. Little information is available in her case.
Were some of these women victims of Gary Ridgway?

2020.05.14 05:52 getsituated My ordeal with Carmax attempting to purchase a 2015 M4

A lot has happened, so I feel like this story needs a timeline. Names changed and locations removed to prevent personal information from being leaked. Skip to the end if you want a TLDR.
March 9th: Contacted a Carmax out in Georgia to give me details about a 2015 BMW M4. I did my homework, reached out to BMW dealerships about the service history, and gave the Georgia store a call to do a once-over with the car before I made the decision to pay $949 to transfer it to my local store in (Local California Carmax). The transfer put an automatic hold under my name.
At this time, I also asked for their Maxcare service. The email they sent me showed a generated maxcare report of the general car information and prices for deductibles. The information showed 2015 BMW M4, Mileage: 54,570. The payment for 100,000 miles/60 months and $500 deductible was listed as $3,559. This number was satisfactory for me and I give the okay to charge my credit card for the shipment. Well worth finding the car in the exact spec I wanted.
March 12th: The car shipped out from Georgia to Local California Carmax.
March 17th: Local California Carmax informed me that shelter-in-place closed the down indefinitely.
Fast forward a few months of being without a car and for the most part, rationing take-out and dried pasta. It’s fine, but I miss the grocery store and going on drives to vent.
May 3rd: The San Francisco Bay Area announced that they would extend the SIP mandate at least another month and I reached out to Local California Carmax to consult about my options. They confirmed that it doesn’t look like Local California Carmax or any other Bay Area location will be opening up in the “forseeable future”. At this point, they recommended that I transfer it to their other California Carmax Location (I'll be referring to this as CA Carmax 2), which is a good 2.5 hours round trip to and from San Francisco. That sucks, but I’ll deal with it. I agreed to have it transferred to CA Carmax 2 from their local storage facility, where their cars were held during shelter-in-place. I was connected with employee 1 (let’s call him Mike) of CA Carmax 2 to continue this process. At this point, I was told it would take up to 4 days to transfer the car to CA Carmax 2.
May 8th: It has been 4 days, so I reached out to CA Carmax 2 on the morning of the 8th about the status of the car and was told somebody would call me back regarding it. Nobody called me.
May 9th: I reached out to CA Carmax 2 again on the morning of the 9th about the status of the car, still nothing, I was once told I’d receive a call back. Nobody calls back. I called back a half hour before the store closed and was finally able to reach somebody to provide an answer. Employee two (let’s call her Rachel), told me the car had arrived and that they needed to handle the paperwork and “get the car ready”. That’s fine, I could wait a little longer because I need to get my car next Saturday at the very latest.
May 11th: Mike finally contacted me and while frustrating, it was decided that unless I wanted to sign the purchase contract sight unseen, then I would have to make one trip out to test drive/view the car and a second trip to pick up the car later on. Annoying, but I get it.
Following this call, I was curious and checked the Carmax app, it turns out that the bay area stores have somehow opened up again for appointment only. Basically, I transferred the car 1.5 hours away for nothing. I didn't want to go through the hassle of another transfer, so I just stuck with the game plan of arranging another ride to CA Carmax 2.
May 12th: I told Mike that I would be showing up to the CA Carmax 2 on May 13th to view and test drive the car. He gives me the okay.
May 13th: It’s been frustrating up to this point, but justifiable because of the difficulty that COVID-19 has caused everybody, but today is what set me off. I walked into CA Carmax 2 today at 2:45PM and was immediately told that Mike took the day off and that test drives had a 2.5 hour wait time. They tried to turn me away by saying they were no longer taking test drives.
I was not happy about this and stated that it was unacceptable considering the ample time I had provided for Mike to let his team know I was coming in. Thankfully, Rachel was there and overheard the conversation, she remembered my difficulty in reaching anybody at the store and has been super helpful, so she tried to speed the process up on the test drive for me. I ended up waiting 30ish minutes and test drive the car. It drives amazing and the condition is as-described! Fantastic! I asked to begin the paperwork process so we can move the ball along. Rachel assures that she will be sending me one of her favorite reps (employee 3, let’s call her Angie) to help me continue the process due to the complications I have dealt with.
I should have expected another hiccup, but this still caught me by surprise. While Angie was pulling up the numbers, there was a discrepancy.
1. Instead of the originally-stated 54,470 miles on the car, the car now has 56,832 miles. Where did this additional 2,400 miles come from? The original mileage was dated 3/9/20 and I let them charge my credit card on the same day for shipping.
2. The Maxcare warranty was now $340 more than originally quoted (from $3,559 to $3,899).
I brought this discrepancy up with Angie (she’s been great thus far), and she went to speak to her GM (let’s call him Richie). Angie comes back and lets me know the $3,899 price is the current price. I asked her why there is a mileage discrepancy and she explained that “CarMax sometimes allows their executives drive cars for up to a month before it is put out on the lot, so that might be why”. I was absolutely livid at this point. I broke it down to Angie from my point of view:
“So, some Carmax executive decides to drive the car I paid $1000 to ship here for 2400 miles before it arrived to me, and I have to pay an extra $340 in warranty because of that? Is that correct?”
Angie had no words and asked if I wanted to speak to her GM. Hell yeah, I wanted to speak to Richie. I was IRATE of the possibility of some jerkwad higher up from Carmax joyriding for 2400 miles in the car I paid $1000 to ship to me before I had a chance to pick it up.
Richie came over, and at this point, I regrettably lose my cool, raise my voice, and drop an obscenity or two. The first time I've ever raised my voice at a sales associate.
“Here’s the situation: Some fucking asshat Carmax executive decides to drive the car I paid $1000 to ship here for 2400 miles before it arrived to me, and you expect me to pay extra $340 in warranty because of that? Is that correct?”
Richie asked me to calm down and to not curse. I apologize, this whole process has tested my patience. I asked, can you explain to me why there is an extra 2,400 miles on this car that I PAID to have transferred to me?
Richie stated that what “probably happened” was that before the car was put on the lot, some executive drove the car around for a bit and put it back on the lot without updating the mileage. I paid $949 to ship a car that somebody drove around for 2400 miles without updating their records and they were going to try and let that slip by throwing on an extra $340 onto the warranty.
Richie stated that he would see what he can do and came back to adjust the Maxcare plan back to the original price. There is nothing he can do about the mileage. I will definitely be reaching out to Carmax corporate about this, but it is likely that I will just receive a long-winded excuse.
At this point, I’m fucking LIVID and if there was any other car with the same options out in the market with comparable warranty as Maxcare, I’d jump on it. Knowing how long I have waited for something like this, I just want to complete this deal and get the paperwork done. Angie helped me finish up the paperwork and we agreed to meet Saturday, May 16th for me to pick-up the car. I left Carmax at 6:30PM.
TLDR: Carmax tried to ship my car during COVID, which was fantastic, but also made this the most difficult transaction of my life. Carmax also attempted to pull off some highly questionable business practices and pass it off as normal. I am furious and exhausted, but I am also in love with the spec of this car and have invested a lot of time and research into this particular vehicle. I will pick this vehicle up but with a complete loss of respect towards Carmax and a buyer beware for everybody to keep record of the numbers that were posted in the ads, because they might just pull the switch-up on you. Carmax has sucked the joy completely away from the purchase of one of my dream cars and left a bitter taste in my mouth.
Carmax's motto is "This is what car buying should be". A car purchase should not involve an executive "borrowing" a performance car for 2,400 miles, selling it as originally recorded, and trying to pass that cost off to the customer.

2020.04.30 21:58 naan14 Theory: Fairview is in Illinois

Edit: Indiana. I think Fairview is in Indiana. My brain is fried and I can't change the title.
Maybe this was already brought up here, but here's my theory: Mike Delfino is a Colts fan, which is mentioned several times (when he builds the baby crib, when he has Peyton Mannings towel framed). Tom also mentions Peyton Manning to Lynnette in passing. Chicago is mentioned constantly, the Applewhites move to Fairview from Chicago and Katherine Mayfair moves there after her daughter's death. It also can't be a southern state considering the big deal that is made around Mike's mom being extremely southern.
Edit: Purdue University was also mentioned in the earlier seasons. We know that it's close to a body of water (which could be Lake Michigan in this case).
Edit 2: when Terrence and his wife are moving to Florida, she says she's excited for "no more winter" - suggesting that even though Fairview always looked unseasonably warm, they did in fact have distinct winters. In the same episode, Gabby barges in on Lynette while she is still hiding her pregnancy, and she grabs a giant parka, which would be suitable for very cold weather, and considering how quickly she got it on, she must have had it on hand (i.e. in a closet with clothes that are being used, not in storage).
Edit 3: Indiana also has relatively weak gun laws (compared to other states), which might explain why everyone has a gun lying around in their purse or nightstand.
Places we can rule out:
• Utah (Mary Alice has family "way out in Fairview" when she lives in Utah)
• California (Carlos & Gabby move there in the end)
• New York (several mentions of flying to NYC)
• Maryland (Dylan moves there in the later seasons)
• Texas (Gabby flies there when she's in therapy)
• Minnesota (Lonney's wife and kids are "up in Minnesota")
• North Dakota (ruled out by "up in Minnesota" remark)
• Florida (Danielle wants to go to college in Florida)
• Nebraska (Ida Greenberg's family is supposed to take her stuff back there after her death)
• Georgia (Nick & Angie move to Atlanta)
• New Jersey (Tom flies to Atlantic City to see Kayla)
• Virginia (Stacy's family is there - S7, Ep3)
• Alaska (duh, but also Mike takes a job there)
• Idaho (Mike tells Paul Zach is in Idaho)
• Washington (Atlantic City is 4h away)
• Oregon (Atlantic City is 4h away)
• Nevada (Atlantic City is 4h away)
• Arizona (Atlantic City is 4h away)
• Montana (Atlantic City is 4h away)
• Oklahoma (Gabby's stepfather is reported missing there)
• Wisconsin (when Andrew dates a woman in S8, she goes "back to Wisconsin")

2020.03.15 21:22 CapybaraPatronus The math behind extreme social distancing

For those of you not taking action, or believing the pandemic to be “over hyped”, you can make fun of me as much as you want now or when this is over. You can make me the subject of memes and post it everywhere. I will pose for the picture. I am not trying to convince you, but I do feel compelled to share information that I deem critical to all of us, which is why I am posting this at all.
WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE 5 MINUTES TO READ AND CONSIDER THE INFORMATION I AM SHARING:
As of 3/15/20 at 9 am PST this post has been shared over 50k times since it was posted 2 days ago. Exponential math let's us predict that it will be shared over 400k times by this time tomorrow. So a lot of people find value in the post and although it's a long read, I believe you will find this information valuable too.
For those of you who don’t know me well, I am analytical and metered. I don’t freak out nor do I respond emotionally. I also don’t post a bunch of bullshit or political or controversial stuff on Facebook. I founded and am CEO of a successful software company that provides SaaS based data, analytics, and dashboards to recruiting departments at companies we all know. As you would expect, I am data driven and fact based. Before founding my company I held executive roles leading very large recruiting teams at some of the world's fastest growing companies such as Starbucks and Google. At Google I was fortunate enough to report to Sheryl Sandberg before she took the Facebook COO role. I was a Chemical Engineering major in college and have a business degree from a top undergraduate business school. I am not one for hyperbole or histrionics. My bullshit factor is close to zero.
I share all this personal information only to help solidify that this post may be worth reading and sharing with others. I would encourage you to forward or share this post at your discretion. Many people do not understand what is happening with the pandemic to the degree required which is why I took the time to write this and share this on Facebook.
Now that I've gotten the introduction out of the way, here are two issues I want to bring to everyone’s attention.
ISSUE ONE: SOCIAL NORMS ARE POWERFUL MOTIVATORS AND GETTING IN THE WAY OF PEOPLE TAKING THE RIGHT STEPS IN RESPONSE TO THE PANDEMIC:
One of the current problems with addressing the pandemic is the social pressures of taking action today. It's awkward, and feels like an over-reaction. The reason it feels like an overreaction is that most people OVERWEIGHT the currently reported cases and inherently UNDERWEIGHT the mathematics of how the virus is spreading and what will happen in about 30 days time. This is because our brains tend to think linearly as opposed to logarithmically. It’s the same reason many people don’t save for retirement or understand compound interest.
To create a new social norm, human beings like to see behavior modeled. This serves as a signal that says, “oh, someone else is doing it so I should do it also.”
SO HERE IS A SOCIAL BENCHMARK FOR REFERENCE - THIS IS WHAT I’VE DONE FOR MY FAMILY TO DATE:
I have already isolated my family. We have canceled EVERYTHING. We have canceled previously scheduled doctor visits. Social get togethers. No play dates. Normal routine meetings. Everything has been canceled. It's difficult and socially awkward. Some of you think I’m crazy, but I’m doing it not because I am afraid, but because I am good at math (more on that in part 2). I had to have my 16 year old daughter quit her job coaching junior gymnasts at the local gym, with one day’s notice and also tell my kids they can't attend youth group at church. Both of those were tough discussions. I told a very close friend he shouldn’t stay at my house this weekend even though he was planning to and had booked his flight from the Bay Area. I canceled another dear friend’s visit for later this month to go snowboarding on Mt Bachelor.
We are not eating out. Our kids are already doing online school so we don’t have to make changes there. I would not send my kids to school even if they were in public or private school. We have eliminated all non-essential contact with other people. We will only venture out to grocery shop when required. We will still go outside to parks, go mountain biking, hiking, and recreate to keep ourselves sane and do other things as a family, just not with other people. We have stocked up on food and have a supply for ~2 months. We have stocked up on other goods that if depleted would create hardship, like medicines and feminine hygiene products. We have planned for shortages of essential items.
THE REASON I HAVE CHOSEN THIS ROUTE FOR MY FAMILY IS MULTI FACETED:
  1. Although my family is considered low risk (I’m 49 in good health, Angi is 46 and in good health, and our kids are 14 and 16), we must assume that the healthcare system cannot help us, because the hospitals will become overwhelmed very quickly. Most American hospitals will become overwhelmed in approximately 30 days unless something changes. More on this in part 2 below. So although we are in great health and unlikely to become gravely ill, the risk is greater if you do not have access to the medical care that you need. This is something for everyone to consider. As a society we are accustomed to having access to the best medical care available. Our medical system will be overwhelmed unless we practice social distancing at scale. That said, the medical teams in Italy are seeing an alarming number of cases from people in their 40s and 50s. Triage tents are already going up in the parking lots at many hospitals close to the epicenters in the United States.
  2. It’s not a matter of if social distancing will take place, it’s a matter of when. This is because social distancing is the only way to stop the virus today.
As I will explain in part 2 below, starting now is FAR more effective than starting even 2 days from now or tomorrow. This has been proven by Italy and China (and soon to be France and other European countries who have been slow to respond.) [updated as of 3/14 France is now on lockdown mandated by the government]. Wuhan went on lockdown after roughly 400 cases were identified (and they had access to testing that America has systematically failed to do well to date). The US already has more than 4 times this number of known infected cases as Wuhan did when it was shut down, and our citizens are far more mobile and therefore spreading the virus more broadly when compared to Wuhan. Yet our response is tepid at best.
If hand washing and “being smart” were sufficient Italy would not be in crisis. So I pray the draconian measures are coming from our government, because they are required to stop the spread of the virus. It’s better to start sooner than later as the cost is actually far greater if we wait. I pray they close all schools and non-essential services the way that Italy and China have done.
  1. Spreading the virus puts those in the high-risk category at much greater risk. This is the moral argument. It’s a strong argument because there are only two ways, as of today, that the virus can be stopped: let it run its course and infect 100s of millions of people, or social distancing. There is no other way today. If you don’t practice social distancing, people downstream from you that you transmit the virus to will die, and many will suffer.
  2. The risk of infection is increasing exponentially, because the quantity of infected people, most who will not show symptoms, is doubling every three days. So the longer you wait to self-isolate, the greater the chance of you or someone you love becoming infected and then you infecting others because more of the population is becoming infected. There are twice as many infected people today as there was on Tuesday.
  3. The virus is already in your town. It’s everywhere. Cases are typically only discovered when someone gets sick enough to seek medical attention. This is important as it typically takes ~5 days to START showing ANY symptoms. Here’s the math: For every known case there are approximately 50 unknown cases. This is because if I become sick, I infect several people today, and they infect a few people each tomorrow (as do I), and the total count of infected people doubles every 3 days until I get so sick I get hospitalized or get tested and become a “known case”. But in the time it takes me to figure out I am sick 50 others downline from me now have the virus. So every third day the infection rate doubles until I get so sick that I realize I have the virus an am hospitalized or otherwise tested. Harvard and Massachusetts General Hospital estimate that there are 50x more infections than known infections as reported (citation below). The implication of this is that the virus is already “everywhere” and spreading regardless if your city has zero, few or many reported cases. So instead of the 1573 reported known cases today there are likely 78,650 cases, at least, in the United States. Which will double to 157,300 by this Sunday. And this will double to 314,600 cases by this coming Wednesday. So in less than 1 week the number of total infected in the United States will quadruple. This is the nature of exponential math. It’s actually unfortunate that we are publishing the figures for known cases as it diverts attention away from more important numbers (like the range of estimated actual cases). [Update as of 3/15/20 - I've been sent more research that may add clarity to the ACTUAL cases vs CONFIRMED cases and will update this post with any conclusions]
  4. Some people cannot, or will not, practice social distancing for a variety of reasons and will continue to spread the virus to many people. So everyone else must start today.
The reasons above are why I have begun to practice social distancing. It’s not easy. But you should do it too.
The hospitals will be at capacity and there are not enough ventilators. You will hear a lot about this issue in the coming few weeks... the shortage of ventilators.
ISSUE TWO: MANY PEOPLE ARE FOCUSED ON THE WRONG NUMBERS:
Yes, the virus only kills a small percentage of those afflicted. Yes, the flu kills 10s of thousands of people annually. Yes, 80% of people will experience lightweight symptoms with COVID19. Yes the mortality rate of COVID19 is relatively low (1-2%). All of this true, but is immaterial. They are the wrong numbers to focus on...
The nature of exponential math is that the infection rates start slowly, and then goes off like a bomb and overwhelms the hospitals. You will understand this math clearly in the next section if you do the short math exercise. Evergreen hospital in Seattle is already in triage. I have heard credible reports from people on the ground that they are already becoming overwhelmed. And the bomb won't really go off for a few more days. Probably by Wednesday, March 18th (next week). In just a few days from now we will hear grave reports from Seattle hospitals. [update as of 3/15/20 - see the comments section below for an update from a staff member at Evergreen Hospital in Kirkland, WA]
You should assume the virus is everywhere at this point, even if you have no confirmed cases in your area.
YOU SHOULD DO THIS SIMPLE 2 MINUTE MATH EXERCISE (NO REALLY TAKE TWO MINUTES AND DO IT):
To further understand exponential growth, take the number of confirmed cases in your area and multiply by 10 (or 50 if you believe Harvard and Massachusetts General estimations) to account for the cases that are not yet confirmed. If you have no confirmed cases choose a small number. I’d suggest 10 cases in your city, if no cases are yet reported. But you can use whatever number you like. This number of infected people doubles every ~3 days as the infection spreads. So literally take your number, and multiply by 2. Then do it again. Then do it again. Then do it again. Do this multiplication exercise 10 times in total.
2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x (the number of estimated infections in your city today (not just the reported cases)).
This result is the estimate for the actual cases in your area 30 days from now. The math will take 30 seconds to complete with a calculator and it’s worth doing the math to see how it grows. This end number is the number of cases in your city 30 days from today if a large percentage of the population do not practice social distancing.
2 to the 10th power is 1024. When something doubles 10 times, it's the same as multiplying by 1024. The infection rate of the virus doubles every 3 days. In thirty days there will be 1,024 times the number of infected people in your area as there is today if your community does not immediately put social distancing into practice. One thousand and twenty four times as many infected people as there is today, in just 30 days.
Next, divide the final number (the scary big one) you just calculated by the current population of your city and you will be able to get the percentage of people THAT YOU KNOW PERSONALLY who will be infected 30 days from now.
Next take 15% (multiply by 0.15) of that final 30 day number of total infected people (the number you calculated by multiplying by 2 ten times). This will provide an estimate of the serious cases which will require hospitalization, and compare it to the number of beds and ventilators available at your local hospital. Google the "number of beds" and the name of your local hospital now. It takes 2 seconds and the number of beds is easy to find. 65% of beds are already occupied by patients unrelated to the coronavirus. St Charles in Bend, Oregon where I live, has 226 beds and the town is roughly 100,000 people. Most hospitals have on average, 40 or fewer ventilators. 5% of patients require ICU treatment. There are very few ICU beds compared to regular beds in hospitals. There are very few negative pressure areas in any hospital to deal with the containment of airborne diseases.
These numbers you just calculated are the Big Problem: Too many patients, not enough beds, and a serious shortage of ventilators (the biggest problem) if we don't immediately begin social distancing. More on this biggest problem related to the insufficient quantity of ventilators is below.
COUNTRIES THAT GET OVERWHELMED WILL HAVE A MUCH GREATER MORTALITY RATE BECAUSE THEY WON’T BE ABLE TO ADEQUATELY CARE FOR THE SICK.
And by sick I mean not just coronavirus patients. Your son or daughter that needs acute care surgery this May for his badly broken leg will be attended to by an orthopedic doctor that has been working at maximum capacity and working 18 hour shifts for 7 days every week for 6 weeks because it was required to care for all the coronavirus patients at her hospital. Or the orthopedic surgeon will be sick with the virus and your son or daughter will be operated on in a tent in the hospital parking lot by a non-expert or a member of the National Guard. Your elderly Mom that has diabetes and goes into acute distress next month may not receive ANY medical care because the doctors are consumed and have to prioritize patients based on triage guidelines based on success rate probabilities. Your sibling’s family that are all injured in a terrible car crash in June will have diminished care. If one of them needs a ventilator there will be none available because all of them will be in use by critical coronavirus patients. Your young friend with cancer and a compromised immune system from treatment will succumb even though the cancer was curable and the treatment was working, because their body was too fragile to combat the coronavirus due to the chemotherapy and they couldn't receive the customized, acute care required due to the hospital being overwhelmed. All of the above is currently happening in Italy, who had the same number of infections we have today just 2 weeks ago. You must start social distancing today.
The count of actual virus infections doubles every ~3 days. The news and government agencies are lagging in their response. So we hear that the US only has 1573 cases today (3/12/20) [update as of 3/15/20: 3115 confirmed cases), ( see https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/) and it doesn't seem like a lot. It would be better to report the estimated actual cases, since reported cases don’t tell us much. However, we know from China that the actual number of cases are at least an order of magnitude greater than the reported cases, because people get infected and do not display symptoms. In math, an "order of magnitude" means ten times difference, or put another way, a factor of 10. 100 is 10 times greater than 10, so it's an order of magnitude greater.
Harvard Medical School / Massachusetts General Hospital just released their estimate (recording is here: https://externalmediasite.partners.org/Mediasite/Play/53a4003de5ab4b4da5902f078744435a1d) that the actual cases are 50x greater than the reported cases. So we likely have 75,000 cases in the United States already. The number of reported cases is not that important.
But let’s assume the current number of cases is only 10,000 ACTUAL cases in the United States just to be conservative and model out what will happen:
If we don’t stop the virus from spreading, in 30 days we will have 2 to the 10th power more cases of infected people because the infection count doubles every 3 days (the virus doubles every 3 days and there are 10, 3 day periods in 30 days).
The math: 2 to the 10th power means 1,024 times as many cases as we have today (2 times 2 repeated 10 times).
This number is a catastrophically big problem for all of us: We will have 10 million+ actual cases (10,000 actual cases today x 1,024) in the United States in just 30 days’ time if we continue without extreme social distancing. 10 million people with the virus. And it will keep doubling every 3 days unless we practice social distancing.
15% of cases require significant medical attention, which means that 1.5 million people will require significant medical attention if 10 million people get infected (15% of 10 Million total infections = 1.5 million people requiring hospitalization).
1.5 million hospitalizations is way more than we have beds for at hospitals in the United States. And 65% of all beds are already occupied in our hospitals. But many patients (5%) with the virus need ICU beds, not just any old hospital bed. Only about 10% of hospital beds are considered intensive care beds. So we will have a huge bed shortage, but that is not the biggest problem, as we can erect temporary ICU shelters and bring in more temporary beds, as Italy has already done, and California and Washington hospitals have already done. Evergreen Hospital in Seattle has already erected temporary triage tents in the parking lot as of 3/13/20. All regular beds are full at Evergreen Hospital as of yesterday.
Once the government of China, Norway, and Italy came to understand this math, they reacted accordingly and shut EVERYTHING down. [update as of 3/15/20 now France has done the same lockdown]. Extreme social distancing is the only response available to stop the virus today. The United States is not responding well nor are other countries like the UK. Countries that do not respond well will pay a much larger, catastrophic price.
But hospital beds are not the big problem. The lack of ventilators is the big problem. Most estimates peg the ventilators in the United States at roughly 100,000 to 150,000 units. See the study from last month: http://www.centerforhealthsecurity.org/resources/COVID-19/200214-VentilatorAvailability-factsheet.pdf
The primary and most serious comorbid (comorbid is a medical term that means co-existing or happening at the same time) condition brought on by the Coronavirus is something called bilateral interstitial pneumonia which requires ventilators for treatment of seriously ill patients. So if 1.5M people of the 10 million infected 30 days from now require hospital care (15% of the 10M estimated total infections), 1.3M may not get the care that they need because we don’t have enough ventilators, beds, and ICU beds in the United States. And remember, this is only if ALL OF US EFFECTIVELY start social distancing by April 11th (30 days from today). This increases the mortality rate significantly.
BUT IF WE START EXTREME SOCIAL DISTANCING BY MARCH 23 (12 days from original writing), WE AVOID OVER 1.4 MILLION PEOPLE GETTING CRITICALLY ILL AND OVERWHELMING THE HOSPITALS:
If everyone takes extreme measures to social distance, and the United States can dramatically reduce the spread of the virus 12 days from now, the math is very different, as the exponential growth will only be 2 to the 4th power (12 days divided by the doubling rate of every 3 days equals the exponent of 4):
2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 16
So instead of 10 Million cases in the United States if we wait 30 days, if we act 18 days sooner, we will have only 160,000 cases (16 times the estimated 10,000 actual cases as of today), of which 15% are likely to require hospitalization. This is 24,000 critical patients (a huge difference compared to 1.5 million acute patients). The difference between taking extreme measures now, versus waiting even a few days, is very large due to how exponents work in math.
THE OUTCOME IS EVEN BETTER IF WE TAKE ACTION IN THE NEXT 6 DAYS: If the vast majority of the population self isolates and implements social distancing in only 6 days from now the exponential math is 2 to the 2nd power (6 days divided by the 3 days it takes the virus to double means the exponent is only 2). In math this is "two squared".
2 x 2 = 4
Multiplied by the estimated 10,000 ACTUAL cases as of today (3/12/20) that means only 40,000 total cases will develop, 15% of which may be critical which is 6,000 critical patients.
This is why you should share this post broadly. If people begin social distancing in the next 6 days it will greatly reduce the impact on all of us. It's why they say a "post goes viral".
SOCIAL DISTANCING WILL REDUCE THE FINANCIAL IMPACT TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY:
Finally, the longer everyone waits to practice significant social distancing the greater the economic hardship will be on all of us. Lost jobs. Mortgage defaults. Closed businesses. Bankruptcies. All will be minimized if you start social distancing today.
Some of the reasons the economic impacts will be reduced are worth mentioning: If we stop the virus now the overall duration of the outbreak will be far shorter. The stock market will normalize more quickly and recover more quickly. Businesses and people will be able to survive a shorter duration outbreak vs a longer duration outbreak. More companies will avoid bankruptcy if we begin to practice social distancing now.
This is a big financial reason to begin social distancing if you are employed by any company: if companies see that the virus is being slowed, they will be less likely to conduct layoffs. You will be more likely to be laid off or experience a job-related event if we don’t practice social distancing immediately. As an HR executive, I’ve been involved in many, many layoffs. It’s the last thing companies want to do. But if they see that the pandemic will be shorter lived vs long and drawn out, they are less likely to make the permanent decision of laying off staff.
The overall economic impact that hits your bank account will be greater if you wait or you don’t practice social distancing. This is why Norway acted now, because it’s less economic impact to take drastic measures early than to do them later, and it saves a lot of lives and suffering by doing so. And Norway has only one confirmed death as of this writing.
Many people have suggested they want to support local restaurants and other businesses, who have seen sales drop by 50-90%. Stopping by and visiting them won't save them. What will save them is social distancing and what you do after the pandemic is over. If you are concerned, call them and buy a gift certificate over the phone.
START TODAY. I CAN’T STRESS THIS ENOUGH. YOU MUST START TODAY.
Finally, the article that I posted yesterday written by Tomas Pueyo has been read 30M times in the last few days and has been updated with new information. It’s worth reading again.

Copied from fb:
original post
This is a long post addressing two underlying issues with the current response to the pandemic that leave me concerned. It’s the longest post I’ve ever written.
For those of you not taking action, or believing the pandemic to be “over hyped”, you can make fun of me as much as you want now or when this is over. You can make me the subject of memes and post it everywhere. I will pose for the picture. I am not trying to convince you, but I do feel compelled to share information that I deem critical to all of us, which is why I am posting this at all.
WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE 5 MINUTES TO READ AND CONSIDER THE INFORMATION I AM SHARING:
For those of you who don’t know me well, I am analytical and metered. I don’t freak out nor do I respond emotionally. I also don’t post a bunch of bullshit or political or controversial stuff on Facebook. I founded and am CEO of a successful software company that provides SaaS based data, analytics, and dashboards to recruiting departments at companies we all know. As you would expect, I am data driven and fact based. Before founding my company I held executive roles leading very large recruiting teams at some of the world's fastest growing companies such as Starbucks and Google. At Google I was fortunate enough to report to Sheryl Sandberg before she took the Facebook COO role. I was a Chemical Engineering major in college and have a business degree from a top undergraduate business school. I am not one for hyperbole or histrionics. My bullshit factor is close to zero.
I share all this personal information only to help solidify that this post may be worth reading and sharing with others. I would encourage you to forward or share this post at your discretion. Many people do not understand what is happening with the pandemic to the degree required which is why I took the time to write this and share this on Facebook.
Now that I've gotten the introduction out of the way, here are two issues I want to bring to everyone’s attention.
ISSUE ONE: SOCIAL NORMS ARE POWERFUL MOTIVATORS AND GETTING IN THE WAY OF PEOPLE TAKING THE RIGHT STEPS IN RESPONSE TO THE PANDEMIC:
One of the current problems with addressing the pandemic is the social pressures of taking action today. It's awkward, and feels like an over-reaction. The reason it feels like an overreaction is that most people OVERWEIGHT the currently reported cases and inherently UNDERWEIGHT the mathematics of how the virus is spreading and what will happen in about 30 days time. This is because our brains tend to think linearly as opposed to logarithmically. It’s the same reason many people don’t save for retirement or understand compound interest.
To create a new social norm, human beings like to see behavior modeled. This serves as a signal that says, “oh, someone else is doing it so I should do it also.”
SO HERE IS A SOCIAL BENCHMARK FOR REFERENCE - THIS IS WHAT I’VE DONE FOR MY FAMILY TO DATE:
I have already isolated my family. We have canceled EVERYTHING. We have canceled previously scheduled doctor visits. Social get togethers. Normal routine meetings. Everything has been canceled. It's difficult and socially awkward. Some of you think I’m crazy, but I’m doing it not because I am afraid, but because I am good at math (more on that in part 2). I had to have my 16 year old daughter quit her job coaching junior gymnasts at the local gym, with one day’s notice and also tell my kids they can't attend youth group at church. Both of those were tough discussions. I told a very close friend he shouldn’t stay at my house this weekend even though he was planning to and had booked his flight from the Bay Area. I canceled another dear friend’s visit for later this month to go snowboarding on Mt Bachelor.
We are not eating out. Our kids are already doing online school so we don’t have to make changes there. I would not send my kids to school even if they were in public or private school. We have eliminated all non-essential contact with other people. We will only venture out to grocery shop when required. We will still go outside to parks, go mountain biking, hiking, and recreate to keep ourselves sane and do other things as a family, just not with other people. We have stocked up on food and have a supply for ~2 months. We have stocked up on other goods that if depleted would create hardship, like medicines and feminine hygiene products. We have planned for shortages of essential items.
THE REASON I HAVE CHOSEN THIS ROUTE FOR MY FAMILY IS MULTI FACETED:
  1. Although my family is considered low risk (I’m 49 in good health, Angi is 46 and in good health, and our kids are 14 and 16), we must assume that the healthcare system cannot help us, because the hospitals will become overwhelmed very quickly. Most American hospitals will become overwhelmed in approximately 30 days unless something changes. More on this in part 2 below. So although we are in great health and unlikely to become gravely ill, the risk is greater if you do not have access to the medical care that you need. This is something for everyone to consider. As a society we are accustomed to having access to the best medical care available. Our medical system will be overwhelmed unless we practice social distancing at scale. That said, the medical teams in Italy are seeing an alarming number of cases from people in their 40s and 50s.
  2. It’s not a matter of if social distancing will take place, it’s a matter of when. This is because social distancing is the only way to stop the virus today. As I will explain in part 2 below, starting now is FAR more effective than starting even 2 days from now or tomorrow. This has been proven by Italy and China (and soon to be France and other European countries who have been slow to respond.). Wuhan went on lockdown after roughly 400 cases were identified (and they had access to testing that America has systematically failed to do well to date). The US already has more than 4 times this number of known infected cases as Wuhan did when it was shut down, and our citizens are far more mobile and therefore spreading the virus more broadly when compared to Wuhan. Yet our response is tepid at best.
If hand washing and “being smart” were sufficient Italy would not be in crisis. So I pray the draconian measures are coming from our government, because they are required to stop the spread of the virus. It’s better to start sooner than later as the cost is actually far greater if we wait. I pray they close all schools and non-essential services the way that Italy and China have done.
  1. Spreading the virus puts those in the high-risk category at much greater risk. This is the moral argument. It’s a strong argument because there are only two ways, as of today, that the virus can be stopped: let it run its course and infect 100s of millions of people, or social distancing. There is no other way today. If you don’t practice social distancing, people downstream from you that you transmit the virus to will die, and many will suffer.
  2. The risk of infection is increasing exponentially, because the quantity of infected people, most who will not show symptoms, is doubling every three days. So the longer you wait to self-isolate, the greater the chance of you or someone you love becoming infected and then you infecting others because more of the population is becoming infected. There are twice as many infected people today as there was on Tuesday.
  3. The virus is already in your town. It’s everywhere. Cases are typically only discovered when someone gets sick enough to seek medical attention. This is important as it typically takes ~5 days to START showing ANY symptoms. Here’s the math: For every known case there are approximately 50 unknown cases. This is because if I become sick, I infect several people today, and they infect a few people each tomorrow (as do I), and the total count of infected people doubles every 3 days until I get so sick I get hospitalized or get tested and become a “known case”. But in the time it takes me to figure out I am sick 50 others downline from me now have the virus. So every third day the infection rate doubles until I get so sick that I realize I have the virus an am hospitalized or otherwise tested. Harvard and Massachusetts General Hospital estimate that there are 50x more infections than known infections as reported (citation below). The implication of this is that the virus is already “everywhere” and spreading regardless if your city has zero, few or many reported cases. So instead of the 1573 reported known cases today there are likely 78,650 cases, at least, in the United States. Which will double to 157,300 by this Sunday. And this will double to 314,600 cases by this coming Wednesday. So in less than 1 week the number of total infected in the United States will quadruple. This is the nature of exponential math. It’s actually unfortunate that we are publishing the figures for known cases as it diverts attention away from more important numbers (like the range of estimated actual cases).
  4. Some people cannot, or will not, practice social distancing for a variety of reasons and will continue to spread the virus to many people. So everyone else must start today.
The reasons above are why I have begun to practice social distancing. It’s not easy. But you should do it too.
The hospitals will be at capacity and there are not enough ventilators. You will hear a lot about this issue in the coming few weeks... the shortage of ventilators.
ISSUE TWO: MANY PEOPLE ARE FOCUSED ON THE WRONG NUMBERS:
Yes, the virus only kills a small percentage of those afflicted. Yes, the flu kills 10s of thousands of people annually. Yes, 80% of people will experience lightweight symptoms with COVID19. Yes the mortality rate of COVID19 is relatively low (1-2%). All of this true, but is immaterial. They are the wrong numbers to focus on...
The nature of exponential math is that the infection rates start slowly, and then goes off like a bomb and overwhelms the hospitals. You will understand this math clearly in the next section if you do the short math exercise. Evergreen hospital in Seattle is already in triage. I have heard credible reports from people on the ground that they are already becoming overwhelmed. And the bomb won't really go off for a few more days. Probably by Wednesday, March 18th (next week). In just a few days from now we will hear grave reports from Seattle hospitals.
You should assume the virus is everywhere at this point, even if you have no confirmed cases in your area.
YOU SHOULD DO THIS SIMPLE 2 MINUTE MATH EXERCISE (NO REALLY TAKE TWO MINUTES AND DO IT):
To further understand exponential growth, take the number of confirmed cases in your area and multiply by 10 (or 50 if you believe Harvard and Massachusetts General estimations) to account for the cases that are not yet confirmed. If you have no confirmed cases choose a small number. I’d suggest 10 cases in your city, if no cases are yet reported. But you can use whatever number you like. This number of infected people doubles every ~3 days as the infection spreads. So literally take your number, and multiply by 2. Then do it again. Then do it again. Then do it again. Do this multiplication exercise 10 times in total.
2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x (the number of estimated infections in your city today (not just the reported cases)).
This result is the estimate for the actual cases in your area 30 days from now. The math will take 30 seconds to complete with a calculator and it’s worth doing the math to see how it grows. This end number is the number of cases in your city 30 days from today if a large percentage of the population do not practice social distancing.
2 to the 10th power is 1024. When something doubles 10 times, it's the same as multiplying by 1024. The infection rate of the virus doubles every 3 days. In thirty days there will be 1,024 times the number of infected people in your area as there is today if your community does not immediately put social distancing into practice. One thousand and twenty four times as many infected people as there is today, in just 30 days.
Next, divide the final number (the scary big one) you just calculated by the current population of your city and you will be able to get the percentage of people THAT YOU KNOW PERSONALLY who will be infected 30 days from now.
Next take 15% (multiply by 0.15) of that final 30 day number of total infected people. This will provide an estimate of the serious cases which will require acute medical care, and compare it to the number of beds and ventilators available at your local hospital. Google the "number of beds" and the name of your local hospital now. It takes 2 seconds and the number of beds is easy to find. 65% of beds are already occupied by patients unrelated to the coronavirus. St Charles in Bend, Oregon where I live, has 226 beds and the town is roughly 100,000 people. Most hospitals have on average, 40 or fewer ventilators.
These numbers you just calculated are the problem: Too many patients, not enough beds, and a serious shortage of ventilators (the biggest problem) if we don't immediately begint social distancing. More on this biggest problem related to the insufficient quantity of ventilators is below.
COUNTRIES THAT GET OVERWHELMED WILL HAVE A MUCH GREATER MORTALITY RATE BECAUSE THEY WON’T BE ABLE TO ADEQUATELY CARE FOR THE SICK.
And by sick I mean not just coronavirus patients. Your son or daughter that needs acute care surgery this May for his badly broken leg will be attended to by an orthopedic doctor that has been working at maximum capacity and working 18 hour shifts for 7 days every week for 6 weeks because it was required to care for all the coronavirus patients at her hospital. Or the orthopedic surgeon will be sick with the virus and your son or daughter will be operated on by a non-expert or a member of the National Guard. Your elderly Mom that has diabetes and goes into acute distress next month may not receive ANY care because the doctors are consumed and have to prioritize patients based on triage handbooks filled with success rate probabilities. Your sibling’s family that are all injured in a terrible car crash in June will have diminished care. If one of them needs a ventilator there will be none available because all of them will be in use by critical coronavirus patients. Your young friend with cancer and a compromised immune system from treatment will succumb even though the cancer was curable and the treatment was working, because their body was too fragile to combat the coronavirus due to the chemotherapy and they couldn't receive the customized, acute care required due to the hospital being overwhelmed. All of the above is currently happening in Italy, who had the same number of infections we have today just 2 weeks ago. You must start today.
The count of actual virus infections doubles every ~3 days. The news and government agencies are lagging in their response. So we hear that the US only has 1573 cases today (3/12/20), ( see https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/) and it doesn't seem like a lot. It would be better to report the estimated actual cases, since reported cases don’t tell us much. However, we know from China that the actual number of cases are at least an order of magnitude greater than the reported cases, because people get infected and do not display symptoms. In math, an "order of magnitude" means ten times difference, or put another way, a factor of 10. 100 is 10 times greater than 10, so it's an order of magnitude greater.
Harvard Medical School / Massachusetts General Hospital just released their estimate (recording is here: https://externalmediasite.partners.org/Mediasite/Play/53a4003de5ab4b4da5902f078744435a1d) that the actual cases are 50x greater than the reported cases. So we likely have 75,000 cases in the United States already. The number of reported cases is not that important.
But let’s assume the current number of cases is only 10,000 ACTUAL cases in the United States just to be conservative and model out what will happen:
If we don’t stop the virus from spreading, in 30 days we will have 2 to the 10th power more cases of infected people because the infection count doubles every 3 days (the virus doubles every 3 days and there are 10, 3 day periods in 30 days).
The math: 2 to the 10th power means 1,024 times as many cases as we have today (2 times 2 repeated 10 times).
This number is a catastrophically big problem for all of us: We will have 10 million+ actual cases (10,000 actual cases today x 1,024) in the United States in just 30 days’ time if we continue without extreme social distancing. 10 million people with the virus. And it will keep doubling every 3 days unless we practice social distancing.
15% of cases require significant medical attention, which means that 1.5 million people will require significant medical attention if 10 million people get infected (15% of 10 Million total infections = 1.5 million people requiring hospitalization).
1.5 million hospitalizations is about 50% more than we have beds for at hospitals in the United States. And 65% of all beds are already occupied in our hospitals. So we will have a huge bed shortage, but that is not the biggest problem, as we can erect temporary shelters and bring in more temporary beds, as Italy has already done, and California and Washington hospitals have already done. Evergreen Hospital in Seattle has already erected temporary triage tents in the parking lot as of 3/13/20. All regular beds are full at Evergreen Hospital as of yesterday.
Once the government of China, Norway, and Italy came to understand this math, they reacted accordingly and shut EVERYTHING down. Extreme social distancing is the only response available to stop the virus today. The United States is not responding well nor are other countries like France or the UK. Countries that do not respond well will pay a much larger, catastrophic price.
But hospital beds are not the big problem. The lack of ventilators is the big problem. Most estimates peg the ventilators in the United States at roughly 100,000 to 150,000 units. See https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21149215 (admittedly dated) and https://theweek.com/speedreads/900850/doesnt-have-enough-icu-beds-ventilators-deal-even-moderate-coronavirus-outbreak
The primary and most serious comorbid (comorbid is a medical term that means co-existing or happening at the same time) condition brought on by the Coronavirus is something called bilateral interstitial pneumonia which requires ventilators for treatment of seriously ill patients. So if 1.5M people of the 10 million infected 30 days from now require acute care (15% of the 10M estimated total infections), 1.3M may not get the care that they need because we don’t have enough ventilators in the United States. And remember, this is only if ALL OF US EFFECTIVELY start social distancing by April 11th (30 days from today).

2020.01.14 19:12 jenniferisdone "Give me the number if you can find it"-Operator, Jim Croce

I would like to start by saying this is a labor of love for the tribe and in if someone has already posted it, then maybe it can just be for comparison but...
I have recorded every number I could find visibly or audibly for every episode. I did not record "how many times x happened" or count numbers of objects (unless they were really obvious) nor did I mark the timing on each incident so this may be incomplete but I haven't seen this posted before. I know u/jacksoncari posted some meaning behind numbers (amazing!) but I am looking for patterns.
Notes if you decide to use this:
  1. All numbers I found are in order from S1E1-S2E8.
  2. Dates and times (including clocks, phones, watches and computer screens)
  3. Addresses and license plates (including some inconsistencies)
  4. Songs in the Soundtrack and Film references with numbers. (Yeah, I went *there*) but it’s incomplete.

Schulz, along with “She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown.” In “Happy New Year, Charlie Brown,” the PEANUTS gang is ringing in 1986, and Marcie and Peppermint Patty are throwing a big New Year’s Eve bash. Charlie Brown plans to celebrate the holiday by curling up with a big book that weighs nearly as much as he does, Tolstoy’s “War and Peace.” The book’s weight doesn’t stop him from lugging it to Lucy’s pre-party dance class, where he cuts a mean rug with a rollicking Patty.

  47. Congressman Peter DeFazio, Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, announced his support for impeachment proceedings on July 25 citing findings in the Mueller report.

In my opinion, we have now reached that point."
  32. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri said on July 29 that he supports impeachment proceedings after reading Special Counsel Mueller’s report and listening to his testimony. "When looking at the evidence presented, there is obviously enough smoke to investigate the potential fire of corruption."

What is truer is that nothing less than the rule of law is at stake."
  38. Rep.

  43. Congressman Peter DeFazio, Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, announced his support for impeachment proceedings on July 25 citing findings in the Mueller report.

  45. On July 25, Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester of Delaware announced her support for impeachment proceedings against Trump: "After two years of investigations, hundreds of pages of documents, and hours of testimony, this much is clear — the Russian government waged a sweeping and systematic attack on democracy.

2019.08.21 19:19 TheHoosierExpress Duncan Discussion's "Masterlist of Prank Call Victims" (Part 2)

This is the original version of Duncan Discussion's "Masterlist of Prank Call Victims" which was a complete listing of victim soundboard prank calls. I can't access the current list but I'll be updating it as I go. I've also been using the masterlist to create an up to date list for existing victim soundboards. The links are supposed to display the most recent calls made on YouTube.
Many victim soundboards (and the original calls) no longer exist, are privately held by a few select pranksters, or were never created.
Edit: I reached the character limit while updating the list so I had to split this up into two parts
  1. Celebrity Soundboard-era (2000-2007) & Duncan-era (2007-2011)
  2. Bail Bondsman-era (2011-2015) & California crook-era (2016-)

2019.08.04 00:33 whateverthebeeswant My grandfather talks as if my late grandmother is still alive. I'm starting to think he isn't crazy

“Angie? How do I describe Angie? She’s perfect. They say there’s plenty of fish in the sea, but I’ve never doubted that Angie is the only woman who will ever make me happy. And she did, for over five decades. We were about to celebrate our fiftieth anniversary of marriage when her body was taken. She was still as beautiful as the day I met her, me, a confused high schooler with a face full of pimples working at your local bowling alley, her, too cool and too beautiful to even speak to me, even in those God-awful 60s bowling shoes. She was a hippy, but in a way that didn’t make her look ridiculous or homeless, even hundreds of miles away from Berkley in the cultural dead zone of the American midwest.”
Granddad Pete looks older than he is. Maybe it’s living on the coast for too long; lots of California retirees shrivel up like orange peels left in the sun. It’s been ages since I’ve seen him, and now that I’m in town Mom says I should visit. I’m the youngest of the grandchildren, and I guess she thinks it’ll do the old man good. He’s been so despondent since Grandma Angie died. Anyway, it beats hanging out at the hotel while Mom goes to her conference meetings and Dad goes whale-watching. Or scorching on the beach where all the teenagers seem thinner and better built than I am. I like the east coast, where it’s freezing half the year and there’s no point n going anywhere without a shirt on.
“We were married straight out of high school. Lots of folks today would say that was silly, and lots of folks said it back then, too. And we fought, sure, because we were dumb kids, and then we were dumb adults, and then we were dumb old codgers cradling our first grandchildren.”
Mom thinks he’s going. He’s there, mostly, but he’s certainly a bit funny. Like how he’s scrubbing his hands, digging under his fingernails. He was tearing up the flowerbeds when I arrived. I helped him pat them down, put in some new bushes. He loves that garden. You wouldn’t think it, but he’s strong too. Wiry, but he can wield a shovel with the best of them.
“I’m visiting Angie today. I try to every day I can, bring her flowers every time, even if it’s just a dandelion I picked on the way over. Angie doesn’t mind; she always liked dandelions, even though most people said they were weeds. Says her grandmother served them during the Great Depression. On our first date, she brought dandelion tea, and when we were married she’d serve dandelion greens. Have you ever tried dandelion greens?“‌
I‌ shake my head. Maybe the hotel would have been a better idea after all. There’s free WiFi and room service, and who knows, maybe California girls like pasty, sickly-looking Irish boys.
Right. But if the old man makes me eat dandelion greens I’m taking the next flight home.
“But I’ve brought her a special bouquet today. She loves flowers, had a great garden of them, although I never bothered with them when she was alive. I pretended to, of course, but Angie knew I was just pretending. She always knew, but she loved that I was trying, too.
I’ve kept up her garden, even her patch of dandelions, though of course, those need little help. A couple of purple irises, a few lotuses, sprinkled with dandelions. They’ve turned into fuzzy little snowflakes, so I pick them carefully, see?”
“They’re beautiful, granddad.”‌ He pulls out a bouquet of flowers. Mom says I should write down the things he says. Sounds like usual old-person talk, but it’s charming, in a way. Besides, she doesn’t think he has much time left to tell them.
“These are called the bird’s foot trefoil. Eggs and bacon is their nickname. She thinks that’s so funny. I think it’s the only reason she kept up with them.”
It’s a yellow lotus with orange insides. It doesn’t look anything like eggs and bacon.
“I don’t suppose you’d like to come with me?‌ Angie would so love if you’d visit her.”
His eyes are far away. Hair trails wispily over his forhead, and his hearing aids emphasize his ridiculous ears. Same ones I‌ have.
“Of course, Granddad.”


It’s a nice cemetery. Pristine green grass, even in this heat.
“Angie loves gardens more than anything,”‌ Grandad says. “I bought her a plot here.‌ We were planning on something less expensive, when the time came, but we were supposed to face it together. Besides, what am I going to spend it on?‌‌ No more anniversaries or birthdays for the two of us, and I‌ can’t bring myself to travel.”
He looks at me. “You got your birthday present?”
It was a computer. Mom said it was too nice for a teenager. Thought he was getting senile. He wouldn’t refuse it, though. If there’s one thing that’s still sharp, it’s his tongue. I thank him.
“You’re the last grandchild. Thought you might like it. You know, we were so happy when you were born. Angie always wishes she’d seen more of you when you were alive.”
It’s perfectly normal, of course. I’ve volunteered at retirement homes and the like. There was even a kid in my year who lost his sister, twenty-four years old. Car crash. When people are grieving they can’t bear to make the switch to the past tense. And fifty years…it’s normal. A little off-putting, but I can’t blame him.
“Did you ever hear how she died?”
I hesitate.
“The doctor said she was at risk of an early death, of course. Diabetes. Type 2. She didn’t look it. We’re retirees, and we’ve always had a sweet tooth, the two of us. And of course we don’t have the bodies we had in our twenties, but we weren’t those people riding around on motorized shopping carts in your local Walmart. We told each other we would never be those people. But Angie was always five-foot six and a solid size four. We didn’t expect it. If she had gained weight, we would have anticipated it sooner.
But she got a head start on it. Walking in the morning, in the evenings. Always in our little neighborhood. Our safe little corner of the world.“
Granddad’s a banker. He made good enough money to retire relatively early and set up his family in a little suburb. You smell the ocean, walk there if you’re up to it.
“We always let the kids ride their bikes around, visit their friends. And that wasn’t just old-fashioned naivete. We knew what was what. We did our homework when we were buying that house. It wasn’t any McMansion gated community, but it was safe. I should have gone with her, you know.”
They always said it was a mugging. My parents, that is. She was out walking and she was robbed. There was more to it, and the newspapers wanted to cover it. An old woman’s murder in an upper-middle class California neighborhood–the hysteria of it all must have had them slobbering like rabid dogs. Mom and Dad made some calls. Got it shut down pretty quick. Said it was insensitive to a grieving old man. They told me not to go looking on the internet, and I didn’t. I didn’t want to know.
“Your parents hid it from the press. I’m grateful. But you never heard, did you?”
He walks through the cemetary slowly. He’s taking his time. Maybe he doesn’t want to get there, just yet. Maybe it’s too painful.
Or maybe I’m reading into things.
“You’re young. Junior, right?”
“Senior.”
“Right. Sorry. Don’t be offended by this old man’s forgetfulness. I’ve been keeping tabs on you. Where do you want to go to school?”
“I’m looking at Stanford right now. They have a great STEM‌ program. I’m into coding. Computer language.”
He waves his hand. “I‌ know what coding is. I‌ know a few people. I’ll put a word in.”‌ He smiles.
“Thanks, Granddad.”
“Don’t worry about it.”‌ He pauses. Steps falter. “I don’t want to speak about it too close to her. It still upsets her. I should have gone with her. I‌ should have gone, but my back was sore and I‌ wanted to sleep in. She kissed me, brought me some coffee. Such a dear she was. Never your regular housewife–always had some cause or other, always planning things–but she did the little things for the people she loved. She was writing a novel, you know?‌ She kept it secret from me. I can’t look at the pages now. I can keep up her garden, but I can’t read it.‌ Maybe she’ll tell me more of it and I can write it down for her. It’s too hard for her right now. She’s so lonely.”
I frown. I wonder if I‌ should mention this to Mom. I wonder if I should drive home.
“They weren’t after money. She was out walking. Why would she be carrying a wallet?‌‌ She was an old woman.
They did things to her. Things I can’t understand anyone doing to any woman, let alone one so old. So helpless. Tied her up. Didn’t kidnap her after. Didn’t ask for a ransom. Didn’t even take her watch. Blunt force trauma to the head after.‌ A neighbor found her. Called the police. Me?‌ I‌ was sleeping in. Didn’t recognize the number. Didn’t pick up on the first ring because I‌ thought it was spam. Rolled over and went back to sleep.“
He keeps walking. I‌ can just make out the writing on the headstone. There are so many flowers. Planted, picked, wilting and blooming.
“I‌ pay the caretaker extra to water them when I‌ can’t. Keep an eye on them, keep the kids off them.” He crouches by her headstone. “She’s the sweetest soul. Loves birds, but wouldn’t keep one. Kept feeders, but not cages. She can’t see them now. I‌ think that’s the worst. Can’t see naything.”
He leans down. Her headstone is simple. The flowers are the real thing. “Angie,”‌ he coos. “Guess who’s visiting?”
He taps his hearing aid. “It was a couple weeks after I started hearing her. I‌ thought I was going crazy. Elaine would have wanted me to see a doctor, but the sound of her voice was too much. I couldn’t lose her. It felt like losing her again.”
Elaine is my mother.
“He’s so handsome,”‌ he says to the grave. “He’s grown up. Yes, a real man.”
I step back.
“She asks if you remember that afternoon at the park?‌ You were running around. You wanted to be a spaceman. No, he wants to be a coder now. With computers. I’ll be glad to have him out of space, though. Can be dangerous up there. So quiet.”
I freeze. Granddad wasn’t there. He had a health scare. Just a hip replacement, but of course anesthesia at an advanced age is always scary. I was six.
Of course she could have just mentioned it to him.
“She said that you kept telling her about all the space missions,”‌ he says. “I’m sorry to have missed it. You sound like quite the kid.” He smiles, then looks at me. “I‌ know I sound crazy. But it’s her. Don’t you see?‌ It’s her.
Elaine wouldn’t like it. I know she wouldn’t. But all the meds in the world won’t make any difference. Then they’ll lock me up.
But you won’t tell, though, will you?‌ She told me their faces. Described them bit by bit. Gave me the names, too, when she knew them. I found them, you know. They didn’t admit it at first. But I‌ knew, because she told me of them. They thought differently with a gun pointing at them.
I’ve never been a violent man. Never liked guns. Elaine’s dad left it to her. Thought she ought to have one to protect herself. But who brings pistol on a morning walk?‌‌ It did avenge her.
At least that garden was good for something.“
He picks at his nails.
She must have mentioned it to him.‌‌ Granddad Pete is so old. It’s just a fantasy. A revenge fantasy to satisfy his addled mind.
“I’m here for a reason. Because I feel that someone ought to know. And it’s too late, before you get any ideas.”
I find my voice. “Too late for what?”‌ I stutter. I haven’t stuttered for years.
“Elaine had a stutter too. It’s nothing to be ashamed of.‌ She says to remember the exercises she taught you. Are you going to have a blue birthday cake for your next birthday?‌‌”
He’s trembling. Sweating.
“It’s not painful. It’s just some medicine. I should fall asleep in a few minutes. I’m sorry to put this on you, but someone had to know. There’s nothing you could have done. I’ve made my peace. I’ve done all I can for her on this earth, but I‌ miss her so dreadfully much and I‌ can’t stand not being able to see her anymore. Knowing the only version of her is in my hearing aid and in the ground. Knowing her only form here is rotting beneath my feet.
She can’t leave until I do. She won’t tell me this. She’s begged me not to. To stay for your sake. But I can’t do this. I can’t, do you see?‌ We have to go on together, even if it’s nothing. Even if it’s only darkness.“
He lies down. I‌ pull out my phone. Dial three numbers. He smiles at me.
“She says goodbye. Goodbye, spaceman. Feel free to follow that fellow. Old bones groan when the wind moans.”
His eyes are far away. They’re turning white now. Cataracts. They look like they’re full of stars, staring at that blue sky.
“911, what is your emergency?”
“My grandfather, he’s–”
He takes my hand. “Not now. There’s nothing to be done. I‌ know the time. I’ve timed it hundreds of times before now. There’s nothing to be done. Just be here with me. Now.”
He sighs. He’s sweating. His palms clammy. His breathign heavier and heavier, panting, really, his lungs whining, scraping, as if they’re shattering into pieces. Fraying away.
“Stay with me. Just stay with me. Please. Be here with me.”
I take his hand. I‌ hold it.
“If this is a prank call?”‌
“My grandfather,”‌ I‌ choke. “Is dying.”
“Home,”‌ he says. “Home with Angie. She says sorry. She says she loves you. She didn’t mean to take me away. Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear.”
Tears streak down my face.
“Angie. The only fish. The only fish. She sells seashells. We surely shall see the sunshine soon.”‌ A smile. A‌ wide, toothy smile. “Angie.”
He shudders, then is still. The operator is sending someone my way. They’ll be too late, and he knew it.
I‌ take the hearing aid. I‌ place it in my ear. It’s morbid, feels like stealing from a dead man. Dead. He’s dead. For her surely is was. Haunted, sure that a was, his was, had to still be an is.
But I‌ have to know. “Grandma?‌”‌ It’s silly. I’m grieving. “Grandma?‌ Are you there?”
Static. The wind in my other ear. A sigh, and then nothing.

2019.06.13 06:34 Kuv3dr [SF] Disgraced Soldier or Manchurian Candidate?

I’m gonna be Frank, this sounds crazy, even to me, and I have been diagnosed bipolar one. I met this guy in Three west. Three west is a fancy military psych ward. This isn’t from my disorder but it’s in his memory and He don’t know why, so I am gonna share it here for him. I will share it, as a sci fi short story none of you would ever believe to be true.
The morning of February 14, 2004, Valentine’s Day, Valerian’s Birthday, the day T never expected to destroy his life. T was so excited, it was the day he finally got to respond for his worst day ever. The morning of September 11, 2001, T was on his way to school with his then crush Xan. Xan was so cute, she was wearing blue jeans and a cute tight white shirt and T was just so happy she had agreed to ride to school with him, finally. He was making a turn in his 1981 Carolla hatch, ugly white with even uglier wheels, no sound system or stereo, and power steering that didn’t always like to work.
The car decided that at this moment, that last problem would make an appearance, and the CD player between him and Xan also decided to skip. T, being a stupid 16 year old, reaches for the CD player with one hand while attempting to turn with the other and stare at Xan. The steering wheel stops turning smoothly and the car careens into a mailbox, sending glass and debris all over Xan. The car then slides across the road into the ditch on the other side slamming onto its side. T, being a super tough strong Jock, opens his driver door, slams the car back onto its tires, peels out of the ditch and drops Xan off at her dumb blonde friends driveway to catch the bus. By the time he gets to school the first tower had already fallen. He had gone home to get cleaned up and tell his mom what had occurred, they had no Tv in their house so T didn’t get the news until he walked into that hushed class.
The class was glued to the Tv. The smoke billowing from the towers rubble. Seconds later the news came, the pentagon had been hit. T’s father was currently working in DC. He ran out of the class room. He had to get home, he ran past teachers, security, and the principal, hopped in his beat up car with its crushed windshield and sped home.
That memory was what fueled T’s rage, his hate, his menace, for years while he lashed out at the system that wasn’t doing enough. He wrote report after report, got F after F for topic and subject not quality of research or production of point but he didn’t care anymore. He knew what he had to do. His Grand Father was in the Air Force in WW2 and he was gonna do the same. He just didn’t realize how closely that would occur till today.
As he cleared his head of the past, and looked at the next few steps too his future, T hugged his mom and his friend Valerian goodbye. No one else has found the time to come see him off. That Valentine’s Day would forever burn in his mind as his last day of civility. He spent basic training at the top of his class in all fields and even tested for SOCOM but decided the academy was his route. After technical training he was sent to his first duty station. This is where the story really begins.
T arrived in Alaska, the final duty station of his Grandfather as an Airman, his first. His grandfather had served as a bomber pilot in the 3rd Operations Group, Bombardment Group during WW2. He was so excited, he was going to make his father, and grandfather proud. The night his mother left is when the things started to get, weird. Today, T maintains that he has two memories of the events that occurred following July 17, 2004 and November 18, 2004.
To make matters worse T has been unable to find his official personnel file, DD-214, or Medical records since his discharge and transfer from Alaska back to VA. He has made several requests for the information. His pay stubs are missing, his GI bill payments come back as unfunded, his copy of his medical records mysteriously disappeared from his home along with his copy of his DD-214. He has odd dental work and a strange circular embellishment on his right cranium. No doctor will give him an x-Ray or cat scan even after being offered cash upfront as payment. He has been hospitalized forcibly twice as a civilian without reason and once as an airman. This poor man has been through it all.
In October of 2004 T is charged with heinous crimes as well as undergoes a testicular amputation preparation course, by November he is opened up and the testicle is removed. The first real memory he can describe is waking from that event. Everything between the night of July 18, 2004 and November 18, 2004 are described as “one memory is a picture with sound, and the other, a full on movie.” This will try to put together, in the best way possible, the duality of T’s memory from those times.
————
July 17, 2004
I am at a gas station with K. Two girls are broken down. I help them get their truck started by banging on the starter while K turns the key. I haven’t found out yet K is part of my soon to be Unit on Elmendorf. K and I drink all night with Athena and Shannon. K takes me back to the hotel my mom and I are staying at before I have to report for duty tomorrow. I call my brother at 0100 to freak out about the sun going down and coming up in the same freaking place. I pass out in the bed next to my mom.
July 18 2004
I report to Munitions Storage as ordered and meet up with White and K. K and I spend the morning meeting the airmen and getting accustomed to life at storage. Around 1300 we are sent to the FTAC.I remember falling asleep in a briefing from OsI at the FTAC center and waking up to be told I have been picked to leave in support of operation enduring freedom as part of TF Olympia. I get up and head to the deployment center and get my gear and am on a plane headed for Kuwait by 1800.
I also remember a picture of Athena and my watch saying 1800, a bottle of Soco 100, and a military ID that says she is 17 as we are driving onto base.
July 19 -27 2004
No picture memories of these dates but vivid video of loading and unloading Mk 82 pallets on a C-7 in Okinawa and Hawaii. Then heading to SK.
July 28 2004
Some where near the DMZ, I encounter my first live fire experience as NK forces attempt to over run a small OP we are restocking. My 7.5 ton truck is clearly stuck in a mud pit as I attempt to turn around. We were delivering T rounds for their MGs and mortar rounds. The SK forces cleared us out the mud quickly and we were back on our way. Picture memory of a strip club and a Quarters Order breech claim by an unknown Airman. Picture of me standing in front of a commander in FTAC being yelled at about what I did wrong. Audio memory of being lectured and me arguing I left after midnight so I didn’t breech the quarters orders of 24 hours from three days earlier.
July 31 - Aug 23 2004
Classified orders, Task Force Olympia, Baghdad. Classified orders, Task Force Olympia, Fallujah Classified orders, Task Force Olympia, Mosul

Picture memories: drunk strip clubs all the time Location: Anchorage Alaska
November 2004
Picture memories: OSI briefing rooms and hospital beds.
November 18, 2004
I remember waking up and the major telling me I may not be able to ever have children but the surgery was a success. Everything before this memory is so fuzzy. I don’t know what is real or fake. I am unable to find Athena for several months. I finally track her down, she claims we never dated and she doesn’t know who I am. Her military ID says she is 25 years old. Athena is the first and last person I remember being with and the only person I remember dating during that time. My new girlfriend Angie confirmed that Athena was indeed 25, and went to high school in Alaska with her. Athena was the child of a SF commander. ————- So as you can see by reading his own accounts, it’s a little crazy. Out of respect to the source, I am omitting some events names and ranks. He is under the impression he did something or saw something that he shouldn’t have, T is also worried he might be a sleeper. His mind is really messed up. He can recite names and dates and places that can be fact checked. That is the weirdest part to me. His facts, check out.
So, take it as a grain of salt, but this poor man’s story deserves to be told. After his testicular removal he was systemically railroaded out of the military. He ended up going before a court martial and being exonerated of all charges with prejudice against his command for unlawful command influence, but not after spending 3 months in the brig for his own safety and others. He has many memories since of words setting him off for no reason. Weird flashbacks, and strange people randomly following him places. His paranoia even heightened my own at one point while I absorbed his tale of espionage and intrigue in the early 2000s.
He has, since discharge, struggled. Most recently he has been unemployed and collecting SSdI. Another one of the little things that makes him feel weird. He got his disability without an attorney, without the need for a hearing, and without even talking to anyone. He has been committed by judges who have apologized to him and said they had no choice. He has had doctors tell him he is not medically unstable and ask him which drugs he wants to take. He has also been forcibly taken by police with no charge and no outbursts. The poor man has been beaten senseless by the system he was so anxious to serve in 2004. If you are looking for light at the end of this story, there isn’t any, he has done everything he can to find the truth, the truth has eluded him the harder he tries.
He hasn’t given up, he now runs a small recording studio. He raises a small boy. He takes care of his niece and his fathers land. He is a good man still today, just confused, lost and broken. He is incapable of trusting even the schools with his son. He is scared of the internet and terrified of public appearances or employers. The man has been totally undone by the system he once swore to protect. No help, no real answers, just tranquilizers and indifference are his reward for his scars.
His story really got to me. T was an idealistic American boy. A Boy Scout, fire fighter, EMT, and Airman. He deserves more from the society he served his whole childhood. I hope this story entertained you. I hope his misery brings you some joy, you heinous monsters. Sorry, like I said, his paranoia got to me a little too.
