Oh My Gosh, It’s a Mash Letter from France: “San Francisco, La Grille Sur Les Collines / The Grid Meets the Hills” – Mapping SF

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Via famed bay area mapmaker Doug McCune comes word of a book from 1999:

San Francisco, la grille sur les collines / the grid meets the hills (English and French Edition) Paperback – June 17, 1999, by Florence Lipsky ISBN: 9782863640777

Oh Ma Ga! I missed this one, both in 1999 and in 2010, when a mini-review appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle:

‘Grid Meets the Hills’ shows terrain shaping S.F

Take a look at these scans from 99% Invisible, a “tiny radio show about design, architecture & the 99% invisible activity that shapes our world.”

And here’s a peek from the Google Books.

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.

Artist’s conception of Lil Debby Perez at the scene of the Berryessa slaying:

If I may so bold, enjoy my comments as well:

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.
