Whole Wheat Toast managed to catch this awesome vision on the side of 1017 Market last week.

No, it’s not pre-invasion Iraq, or WWII-era USSR, or Cuber, or North Korea, it’s Market Street, USA.

Gavin Newsom Calls for More Giant Glittering Sidewalk Eggs: “Market Street Should Have 100 of These Damn Things”

Friday, December 10th, 2010

San Francisco’s most productive journalist these days has got to be Steve Rhodes – the man is out there in the field reporting on things All The Time.

As it was last night, when S.R. was on hand to catch Mayor Gavin Newsom encountering the debut of The ARTery Project,” which is:

“An exciting series of art events, fairs, installations and performances taking place along Market Street between UN Plaza and 6th Street.”

O.K. then.

And let’s let Steve tell us what Gavin was saying last night:

Market st should have 100 of these damn things. I can say that now that I only have 30 days.”

A few minutes later shaking a man’s hand: “It is good to see art out here”

There’s still more to do.

O.K. then.

I think I missed all that fuss, passing by a little while later. (You could tell something arty was going on just by the number of art student-types milling about the Mid Market.)

SFPD to Question Questionable Deborah Perez, Purported “Daughter” of Zodiac Killer

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

Of course it doesn’t matter if not-ready-for-primetime Deborah Perez is “crazy” or not – if she has all this evidence proving the identity of the Zodiac Killer then it will be useful for her to turn it over to the San Francisco Police Department. So here’s the news, the SFPD is amenable to spending a little time hearing her story. Is that surprising? Not really, but read on to see the latest Press Release.

Daughter of the Zodiac Killer to Be Questioned by the SFPD

How about “purported daughter”?

Investigative Reporter/Journalist Larry Garrison Comes Forward to Support the Evidence that Guy Hendrickson is the Zodiac Killer

“Support the Evidence.” What?

For the first time in twenty-five years, the San Francisco Police Department will call in a key potential witness for questioning to identify the Zodiac Killer officially.

All right.

Deborah Perez has been called in by Lt. Michael Staskos (badge No. 724) of the SFPD Homicide Unit.

All right.

Date to appear is June 17, 2009.

All right.

She will be questioned about her father, Guy Ward Hendrickson.

All right.

The nation’s top forensic experts have endorsed her handwriting, psychological, and DNA evidence showing participation in the Zodiac Killings.

Oh no they didn’t!

Her evidence was recently turned over to Lt. Staskos SFPD.

All right.

Deborah Perez was seven years old at the time she became his innocent sidekick.

Oh no she wasn’t!

Deborah became aware of her father’s involvement in the Zodiac murders years later after viewing a segment of “America’s Most Wanted” composite that resembled her father.

But what if Guy Ward Hendrickson isn’t the Zodiac?

On April 29th, she came forward with a press conference at the San Francisco Chronicle.

Really? At the Chronicle? Ha ha ha ha ha! How about on the sidewalk near the Chronicle?

The glasses which she handed over to Lt. Michael Staskos on May 5th, currently held in evidence by SFPD, will be part of the DNA proof needed.

How do you know that?

Deborah Perez feels she “…owes it to the families of the victims to put this case to rest.”

All right.

Though others have come forward, no one has been able to substantiate a claim as Deborah has achieved with eye witness testimony, forensic and DNA evidence.

DNA evidence? Really? Deborah is so unique and special, a bunch of old white guys should make a movie about her, or something.

She is also the only witness ever endorsed by members of famed attorney Melvin M. Belli, who the Zodiac contacted.

“Members of famed attorney Melvin M. Belli” Really? “Endorsed.” What? Wasn’t Melvin Belli kind of a hack? I know an attorney – he used to work for/with Melvin Belli back in the 1990′s, had to sue to get paid the salary he was owed. Does this experience qualify him to divine the Zodiac?

The Belli group has requested the Zodiac Killer/Melvin Belli Files which SFPD has in possession for 40 years.

The “Belli Group”? Is that a law firm?

Larry Garrison, President of SilverCreek Entertainment, and Investigative Reporter/Journalist, has just come on board to support Deborah Perez.

Well, Katie bar the door! Mr. Garrison? Really?

After his own investigations, Garrison verified the evidence including handwriting analysis reports of Perez with professionals.

No he didn’t!

Garrison has been shown that “Deborah, in fact, wrote those Zodiac letters and her DNA will be on at least one of the envelopes.”

Nice passive voice there!

Attorneys from the Belli office have also confirmed that Deborah was in fact the child who accompanied her father, Guy Ward Hendrickson, to Mr. Melvin Belli’s office.

Attorneys? Former attorneys? Disbarred attorneys? Well, gee, if an attorney believes something, it MUST be true!

Larry Garrison states, “The proof will be in the forensic evidence and DNA once Deborah has her chance to have it analyzed.”

Oh, poor Little Debby! Was she too busy signing movie deals to actually turn over her “evidence” in 2007?

And On it Goes.

Zodiac Update – Proof that Deborah Perez was at Scene of Berryessa Slaying

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

What do you do when somebody comes to you with their version of the Zodiac Killer story. You say, “You’ve got the looks, I’ve got the brains, let’s make lots of money,” or something similar, of course! But isn’t that a little patronizing, though? To say, yes, I believe everything you have to say about your father, yes, I validate your beliefs, and hey, maybe let’s get a movie deal working?    

In the words of the late Dr. Marvin Monroe, “This is not the way to get healthy!”

Guy Ward Hendrickson with daughter Deborah Perez (known as “Little Debbie” at the time) at Lake Berryessa. Can you see her having snacks at the picnic table?

Do you think the above is valid evidence? Is it time to call Hollywood with this key to the puzzle?

Hey, how about a documentary about the making of the documentary? That would be far more interesting, non?
