Wasn't feeling so great and took medication last night. The location of the manufacturer? Woonsocket, RI. *shudder*

Okay, there is this show on TruTV, not one of the paranormal or true crime programs I normally go for, but when up against it I try "funny" programs. One such, World's Dumbest, I generally find actually funny, featuring stupid criminals and other fare, but a ripoff called Almost Genius is almost unbearable--it should really be called Almost Maimed or Killed, since most of the films feature people doing things they really shouldn't have tried in the first place, involving skateboards and long flights of cement steps, and were spared being seriously injured or killed either by guardian angels or dumb luck.

In this one video, a girl (maybe late teens-early 20s) wasn't really doing anything wrong. She was tooling around on a watercraft, slowly and near shore, not being reckless, just laughing and having her picture taken. She left the watercraft and literally took two steps when some maniac absolutely rammed her now unoccupied craft with another watercraft. My mind flashed to that girl in Florida run over by a boat. This girl would have been broadsided! Here is a link to the video: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/0...n_5650618.html (My sister is a doctor and could not watch Funniest Home Videos for this reason--too many people missed the ER or the morgue by two inches!)

I will say Unsolved Mysteries is the main reason why I consider myself street smart.

Seriously, it will scare the **** out of you.

Because of the "Debbie" segment, I lock my car as soon as I get in it. No sitting and fumbling around, no waiting until I've put everything down. Nope.

I keep my car locked because of the Gretchen Burford case. And even though locking my car has become a natural reflex for me, I still check the backseat of my car before entering every single time because of Gretchen. I've been doing that for 16 years now and I don't plan on stopping any time soon.

I know Woonsocket well. It is a French Canadian industrial city on the Blackstone River in the northeast corner of Rhode Island. CVS started there and still has its headquarters in the city,

In my case, I think it was an episode of America's Most Wanted in which an abductor locked a woman in the trunk of her car, let the car roll downhill as if he were ditching it in water, and other horrible things. She finally ended up half-naked in the woods, tied to a tree, and would have died had two young girls not discovered her in time.

I was fairly hyper-aware due to attending what I learned years later was actually the third most dangerous college campus in America. It was in such a rural area at the time I kept thinking, if it is this bad here, how bad must cities be? I was terribly surprised when the Central Park jogger case and the Utah tourist stabbed on the New York subway made national news. Since the age of ten I had simply accepted and taken for granted that at least ten or twenty people were raped and murdered in New York on any average day and more on some days, which went double for the subway and the park!

One of several times I most feared becoming a victim was right after college graduation--still about two years before Unsolved Mysteries first appeared. I went to the Chicago area, staying with friends, but traveling by day alone, on a trip which was my graduation present, and took a cab to the Field Museum. I could tell by the cabbie's looks and foreign accent and the name I glimpsed on his ID that he was of Middle Eastern/Arab descent but did not note his exact name. He behaved very strangely, at first saying he didn't know where the Field Museum was, that there were several, but I made him understand I wanted the one with the dinosaurs. He started pestering me that instead of going to a boring museum I should come home with him! Whether or not I answered, I must have looked alarmed because he said, "It's all right; my sister's there," and kept asking, "Why don't you?"

What I should have done (and hope and trust I would have had this occurred after I started watching UM), was say, "I'd be glad to get together with you later, but I am meeting friends who expect me at the museum in fifteen minutes" (of course, no one was, but make him think I would soon be reported missing) "but give me your name and phone number so I can contact you." I would then, when I got home, find the most recent Chicago Yellow Pages I could (which larger libraries had then), write every friggin' cab company in that part of the state, and say, "Here is this guy's name and phone number. If you employ him, FIRE THE BASTARD, NOW, if you don't, DON'T HIRE HIM!" I really hope this is what the next potential victim did!

As it was, I was really afraid to say anything. I just decided if he tried to drive me anywhere that did not look like it led to the museum, when he slowed down in traffic I would fling myself from the cab screaming bloody murder until I attracted attention. After he dropped me, at the museum after all, I had to go into the bathroom and spend some moments calming down. I was shaking and pouring sweat, and my heart was pounding fit to burst.

And you won't ever see me at any rest stop if there aren't many people there or if it's dark; even if it's 6 p.m. (Dwayne Mcckorkendale).

Yup. I became even more hyper-vigilant after I became a criminal defense attorney and remembered the tragic facts of Gretchen's case. I found it so ironic that she was murdered by a person who she would have argued tooth and nail for in the courtroom...

Random: Was it widely publicized that her killer was caught and sentenced to life without parole? It was news to me... All I can say is "Yay for DNA!"

Holy crap, Cori. That sounded really frightening! I'm glad nothing happened to you! What a scary life lesson...

Yeah, that was frightening all right. There were actually two other times I was in a vehicle alone with the driver (one other was also a cabbie) when I feared something might go wrong--maybe I'll write about them sometime--but this was notable because the guy was so out of line and so insistent and persistent when I was not responding positively if at all. When I'm in a panic like that, especially back before UM, I don't think till much later what I should have done so yes it's lucky nothing bad happened.

Whenever I meet a woman for a blind date and she has cold hands, I say: "Must mean you have a warm heart".




I go on a lot of dates. :-(

When you go camping and you hear the crickets chirping late at night and see flashlights shining near your tent. Makes it hard to sleep.

Every time I pick up sticks, or put plants, a watering can, or anything else untidy into my car, I think, "He wouldn't any more put firewood in that car than--"

Every time I clean house, I can't help thinking no matter what I do, it is not clean enough for Paul Pollis. You don't know what satisfaction this gives me.

A Virgin Mary Madonna or some other religious item will often remind me of the Catholic-related mysteries. My dad complained that all the religious segments were Catholic, though in fact the church at Beatrice, Nebraska was Protestant, the Cokeville, Wyoming angels were LDS, the Kentucky angels I believe were Protestant. (I think of them sometimes when a picture doesn't turn out right.) Mom and I learned that Catholic school questions have rote answers which kids could recite by heart, there is a Catholic idea that inevitable suffering can be offered as a sort of gift, and other useful little tidbits not always vouchsafed to Protestants.
