One sunny day when I am too bubbly I will read your book on grizzly Spokane murders. Until then, I will console myself with new NBC series, The Book of Daniel, which the Little Rock Ark., NBC affiliate has banned from its airways. So it must be good, don't you know. Looking forward to going totally Hollywood next month as we descend into LaLa Land ala Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate. (In my case, its definitely post-graduate).

My book BODY COUNT is about the same Spokane case, and Fuhrman's book is horribly inaccurate, filled with absurd errors, and was written originally as an attack on the Homicide Task Force for not solving the case. Just prior to publication, the case was solved and he came crying to them asking for their cooperation. They told him to go to hell. Then I showed up and then were already burned by him. This made my life very difficult at first, but they warmed to me and helped me as much as they could/felt like. Read my book and see the difference in how the case and the victims are treated.'

It’s difficult to ascertain why “Murder in Spokane” by Mark Fuhrman was written other than some publisher thought another sensational homicide book about prostitute murders would sell. I was drawn to the title because I was born and raised in Spokane and thought that I might learn something about current events there other than the homophobic closet case mayor who was recalled. Not a very interesting read and I skipped to the last chapter. Interestingly, Fuhrman, who investigated the OJ murders, co-hosted a talk show on KXLY-AM with Mike Fitzsimmons, which was a hot top 40 station when I last lived in Spokane. Also Fuhrman lives in ground zero for crazies Sandpoint, ID. Apparently, East Sprague Ave. in Spokane is the spot for desperate living in Eastern Washington, in case anyone is interested in moving there and becoming a drug lord or hooker.

I am appropriating this wonderful Rank gong banger bit for my blog where I have posted my Carry On thoughts. See www.cheezymovies.blogspot.com

The man who banged the gong for the Rank Organization was the grandfather of the lead singer/songwriter of the UK music group, The MONO TONES. The entire family was in show biz of some sort -- mostly thespians or buff body builders who banged gongs.

Thanks for submitting "Last Year at Marienbad" analysis on my blog www.cheezymovies.blogspot.com Right! Very much like the "Truman Show" halographicness and maybe they'll do a remake with Jim Carey. I am a huge fan of foreign movies having watched last night "Carry on Matron" where two obvious gay guys are trying to seduce a zaphtic head nurse. Not halographic. Not even a pretty site from the Rank Organization and what ever happened to the guy who bangs the gong. Happy New Year.

I toast a healthy New Year.
