nope did not buy it but understand selling it some woman Brenda hagin, has that juvenile book that is basicly just what is on the web and some of the facts aren't correct she has done very well it is said in sales it is $45 teachers do not buy it students , libraries have to
Because Zodiac's ciphers often look tantalizingly solvable,many get led astray,and believe that someone else must have the solution,paving the way for ''short cuts'',in their investigation.
With specialist subjects,it is almost always the case that the designated teacher,will make purchases,on behalf of the school.
I have a copy of the Brenda Haugen book.For beginners,it is excellent,and would recommend it,for the purpose of a general idea of what ''all the fuss was about'' [!].Once senses that Ms.Haugen,saw a ''need'' and a ''niche'',and provided an unpretentious introduction to the case.
But,many others just hitch a lift on the bandwagon,with the sole intention of making a buck,of ''easy'' money.
I don't really believe,for example,that Mr.Thomas Horan is a true ''nihilist'' on the existence of Zodiac.Here is a case [....and not a basket case [!]...]of a Zodiac enthusiast,bereft of ideas,and frustrated at not being able to come to terms with the existence of a truly enigmatic psychopath.
So he hits on the idea of becoming a particularly controversial ''conspiracy theorist''.He writes two books;makes a few waves,and finds his niche within the Zodiac ''arena''.But as time goes on,and Law Enforcement appear still prepared to hunt down this real individual,called Zodiac,Mr.Horan's theories begin to look a bit ''tired'' and ''old hat''.In addition,Mr.Horan finds that he is dependent on those,who largely ''believe'',for his income,and a purpose in life.
Conspiracy Theorists who theorize,just for the sake of staking their claim,on an ''angle'' to a particular case,are INTELLECTUALLY LAZY !
I don't think many will buy his book after viewing tell YouTube video he has. Total crap , over 1/2 of symbols not used trying to deconstruct this cipher blindly is like trying to catch a big fish by casting a bare hook into the water and reeling it in.
I am always in favor of encouraging others to try to reveal anything of the legacy of Zodiac's secrets.
Perhaps I should be humble enough,to hold back from discussing my journey,on how I ''stumbled upon'' Zodiac's ''340'' solution.
It certainly didn't happen ''overnight'',and strangely,must thank Zodiac,for his lucidity at the time of constructing his cipher.I believe that it mean't pride to him,after the ''humiliation'' of the ''408''.
Rubislaw 32's solution is now in the hands of the FBI.They are presumed to be experts in this field.
Zodiac's ''340'' cipher represents a direct ''vehicle'' for Extortion.And an indirect one for Murder.
Hopefully,the FBI will share their findings with the general public,soon [?].
Rubislaw32: The Zodiac then in his writings, imitating life imitating art imitating life. There seems to have been that surrealistic side to him in evidence - imagining himself as Dan Cooper the skyjacker, a desk top poem, a mural, and even a message in a bottle.

Rubislaw32: But, if we examine Jack as a template of fear used by the Zodiac, we see a man who actually strangled all his known victims - only to then desecrate them after death. And, someone who was impersonated in writing by someone else, using red ink - not blood.

Rubislaw32: ...likely an old sword bayonet was employed - accompanied by a gun for persuading victims' submission. Thereafter, the Zodiac appears to have often referenced Jack the Ripper by inference, to perpetuate the lie that he was an ''all round killing machine''.

Rubislaw32: ...which represented the facts about him. All indications to date suggest that the Zodiac was not a ''man of blades'', with his Lake Berryessa attack a ''one-off'' on account that he was running out of guns. And in that case, a double-edged blade, most...

Rubislaw32: ..yet to be brought to justice, so nothing actually ''from the horse's mouth''. And B) The Zodiac kept reminding us that his writings were all about leaving ''clews'' - a combination of truth, lies and red herrings. And up to the readers to sort out that..
Dec 7, 2022 19:10:14 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: As negative criticism is heaped on the new Netflix TV series about Jeffrey Dahmer for deliberate misrepresentation of the facts, it's worth considering the pertinence of any filmic representation of the Zodiac for accuracy, given that A) The Zodiac has....

Rubislaw32: Donna Lass reward poster : ''Family are confident that her abductor/murderer will be arrested, tried and found guilty.''. Now then, human remains were placed by Flume Trail, just 7 weeks before the FBI's Dec 11th 2020 Tweet. Everything out at once - FBI ?
Dec 6, 2022 18:59:55 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: You are the weakest link FBI, as CA DOJ considers arresting the Zodiac. With the MA DOJ having little to be proud about. But FBI - instead of behaving yourselves, you have become headless chickens in the wake of Comey's dismissal and disgrace. Dead meat.
Dec 6, 2022 16:03:58 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: So you see FBI, Z has your number on attempting to blame him for Donna Lass - an Achilles heel for you FBI. In addition, Z will know that Boston D.A. Jonathan Blodgett assisted James Comey to impress the Crown Office with Joan Webster's case file.
Dec 6, 2022 15:54:45 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...to Donna's victimhood, instead of Judith Hakari. Then in (circa) 1997, with the Zodiac's poster superimposition of a cipher, indicating that the Zodiac had changed his assessment, Z blamed the FBI exclusively (BEWARE I AM STALKING DOUBLE-ZERO !).

Rubislaw32: So, for the Zodiac out there still at liberty, in 1974 he sent Donna's sister Mary a Christmas card inferring that Donna had been allocated ''Guardian of the Pines'' - believing that Mary was in on knowledge that the FBI had allocated the Pines card to....

Rubislaw32: Face it FBI - you are ''screwed'' in all directions with influential LE hierarchies - and all of your case cover-ups have been observed; each with reasons, known by your peers. A ''can of worms'' - eh FBI ? But morally, the worst of these is Donna Lass.

Rubislaw32: Moreover, and as far as I am aware, NCIS Washington D.C. were actually the first to know about the ''solution'' (MR Z = SON) under the Marianne Moore postage stamp, beyond CA DOJ & FBI. NCIS's first contact then, was with the Crown Office or US DOJ.
Dec 6, 2022 8:54:13 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: The implication then, that Comey cottoned on to Grant's DNA indicating he was Z's probable father, in 2014 - and went off in a ''hissy fit'', then breaking the law. And, with this information having emanated via the Crown Office (UK). Comey's downfall.
Dec 6, 2022 7:54:47 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: And, this is what the fall-out in the Zodiac case between CA DOJ & FBI seems to have come down to : James Comey felt that CA DOJ should have informed FBI about William Grant's DNA in 2002/2003. Whereas CA DOJ were officially, under no obligation to do so.
Dec 6, 2022 7:35:31 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...testing & eliminations that involved CA DOJ & FBI work, at the behest of President George W Bush. It may be the case then, that the FBI feel they were ''blind-sided'' by CA DOJ. FBI however, were in the service of CA DOJ like PD's, and no extra rights.
Dec 6, 2022 7:26:45 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...Zodiac Intelligence processors, one can't be certain if they the FBI received a similar circular as police departments, from CA DOJ. But 2004 would be in keeping with the DNA testing and suspects eliminations that took place 2002/2003. Those DNA....
Dec 6, 2022 7:23:02 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...from case custodians CA DOJ, to proactively investigate - so it seems that the circular was more related to letting PD's know that specific task requests from CA DOJ would no longer be forthcoming. Since the FBI held a different case role, as ....
Dec 6, 2022 7:19:16 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Albeit unconfirmed, information I have read is that in 2004, a general circular went out to all PD's with Zodiac case connections, from the CA DOJ, that the case was to be ''run down'' on scale of investigations. PD's had to be served or gain permission...
Dec 6, 2022 7:14:20 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: That was poetic : The FBI peeled away the Marianne Moore postage stamp on the 1990 Celebrity Cipher card, to reveal that ''MR Z = SON''. Horrors for the FBI to find later that the CA DOJ had done them over William Joseph Grant's DNA. He was Z's Secret Pa.
