You can tell a lot about people by their sense of humour. Has this been mentioned before? Personally, I think the book was a double bluff, but it's hilarious, and perhaps food for thought. I can't say much more, due to the need to protect my suspect (until charged). And of course, as always, my bum may be oot the winday. Far out.
'The Principia describes the Discordian Society and its Goddess Eris, as well as the basics of the POEE denomination of Discordianism. It features typewritten and handwritten text intermixed with clip art, stamps, and seals appropriated from other sources.'
In Zodiac's communications, I believe every ink tadpole, dot, arc and even the stamps, are clews. The word 'clew' is in fact his biggest clue of all. (It's the ball of thread you need to escape the Minotaur.)
I think he had a high time implicating all his co-conspirators. And he wanted to be caught. To me, the case is all about the fight against the 60s Counter Culture. Sorry if this has been posted before. I can't find it. Take a look.

An interesting reference given,there.Indeed,''perception'' can ''persuade'' [?].
Zodiac,as a writer of letters,bought in to the popular notion that the pomposity and grandiose aspects of the accepted ''British Stereotype '' would be the most persuasively ''sinister ''.Luminaries of the theater,like Alfred Hitchcock and Vincent Price,had effectively,confirmed this by their popularity in the past.
Perhaps Zodiac's most memorable line : ''This is the Zodiac speaking '' demands attention,declared with authority and gravitas [?].But where did it come from ?
Growing up as an English schoolkid,raised in the outbacks of West Africa,my only real contact with the outside world was daily radio doses of The BBC World Service.Every hour,on the hour was the news.It was always introduced thus :
''This is the World Service of the BBC in London - here is the news.''
Hearing it so often,it leaves an indelible mark on one's memory,that can never be erased.I am only one of literally thousands,that share this.So,Zodiac's letter introductions certainly ring a bell,there.
One is persuaded that Zodiac was a regular listener to the BBC's overseas radio service,and therefore,more than likely to have been a regular ex-patriot worker [?].
The fact that the serious content of Zodiac's letter's would descend into ''witty banter'',in the form of ''cat calling the cops''and pathetic gallows humor,detracts from the fact that he had already secured your attention,just as a crocodile hypnotizes its victims.

''He's reading the funny papers,already'' - as ''Mikey'' told his father,about Don Corleone's infant grandson,Michael,in The Godfather.
I suspect,and believe that Zodiac was a voracious consumer of ''Daily rags'' - probably all the way from childhood,graduating from comic publications [?].
Yes,it does seem likely that Zodiac enjoyed the Count Marco columns.Zodiac appears to have enjoyed impressing on us that he appreciated literary irony - so it is a sign of weakness that he elected to threaten Count Marco.He effectively did the same to Paul Avery,but Mr.Avery would never have had a good word to say about Zodiac,anyway.
''Amuse my bright mind - but never upset me !'' - classic psychopathic philosophy from Zodiac [?].
Rubislaw32: see HMIC about this - OK ?

Rubislaw32: Thanks for the Blackfoot Alphabet tip , Guest 123 .This could be of interest , with the Z148 cipher text . Given a link to the Karl Werner murders , Z148 is likely to be Zodiac authentic . Nice spot .

Guest123: Most of the people murdered have double letters in their name. Is it a coincidence? Is it deliberate?

Guest123: Look at the Blackfoot alphabet. Some of the letters look like the symbol in one or more of the cyphers.

Handyman: ricardo; if the watch is as a compass and the math addad , 36/42 or between its centre 40/41 would or could this also be used at the geographical end of the puzzle , I heard the trick is to find his north ? seeing as the numbers are a key. dvk

RandolphCarter: Were there any significant astronomical events of 2019 Zodiac would have observed? What were his thoughts on the Ultima Thule Flyby? Randolph Carter smiled to himself in the Strange High House In The Mist that night and thought of sunken Uralia.

RandolphCarter: The irony of reward money is there must be a world left to spend it in. How deep does Zodiac go and will there still be a bank to go to? The clear headed researcher must remind himself of this.
