Dec. 31st 2021 : '' It would be nice to wind up 2021 optimistically for a Z case resolution. I believe that it is still possible, and in the hands of Departments of Justice - exclusively. Information has always travelled up the ladder to their criminologists & prosecutors.''.
Dec. 31st 2021 : '' Sadly, an ex-Director of the FBI decided to keep some of that information to himself, and paid the price, that has left the FBI on a false-footing of importance. The least that they could do is behave themselves, and show families of Z's victims respect.''.
Dec. 31st 2021 : '' When the FBI attempt a patch-up job on their past input, their nefarious behaviour becomes more and more conspicuous. The FBI were entrusted to catch the Zodiac as an extortionist, so that he could be tried as a multi-murderer. They failed.''.
Dec. 31st 2021 : '' But, I wish everyone else, apart from the FBI's ''partners in crime'' the Hearst Corp., all best wishes for the year ahead, and hopes, finally, for justice. To FBI & Hearst : '' The party's over - it's time to call it a day....time to wind up the masquerade.''.''.

Dec 31st 2021 ? '' The last words of the year from Mr Fagan himself : ''My editors aren't interested in Zodiac stories unless they are major. I'm the longest-tenured Zodiac reporter in the country - and it's not a beat I take lightly.'' For the times they are a-changin' ? ''. ''.
Jan. 1st 2022 : '' Extra information gets you nowhere, anyway ? I had got to the point where I was fed up with so many tearing themselves apart, directly and indirectly, over the dismissal of James Comey. Whatever anyone's opinion, The President acted within his rights.''.
Jan. 1st 2022 : '' So many moral dilemmas at play, on observation. Congress were offered Robert Mueller's unredacted report, on condition that they not share it with the public. But Congress turned this down on moral grounds of being representative of public knowledge.''.
Jan. 1st 2022 : '' So, Congress were aware that the questions they might choose to ask DOJ representatives in particular, were not necessarily commensurate with all the apparent facts. And, as witnessed, 90% of the questioning revolved around ''The Russia thing''.''.
Jan. 1st 2022 : '' But, I had got to the point of approaching a well-known and well-respected journalist. But, then I realised that he was, in effect, in the pay of The Disney Corp. who, together with The Hearst Corp., own The History Channel. I gave up.''.
Jan. 1st 2022 : '' Others are free to do as they choose, but my advice is to not trust any journalists, surrounding the Z case. And, if you have any information you believe to be valuable, then lodge it with a politician you trust, listening to their advice. if offered.''. Jan. 1st 2022 : '' As apparent, I believe that the FBI have set a precedent for bad behaviour in the Z case. And this largely, ever since Comey's dismissal in May 2017. Together with the Hearst Corp., they have acted entirely with self-interest. Cynical and contemptuous.''.
Jan. 1st 2022 : '' As an overview, I would like to think that the FBI have finally learned their lessons on Z case meddling, concerned about how their past performance will be viewed in the future. If they believe that DOJ's haven't employed other agencies to....''.
Jan. 1st 2022 : '' ...watch over proceedings, at a more ''grass roots'' level, then they are more naive than they have behaved to date. The DOJ's succeeded in ridding themselves of a perceived ''bad apple'' who, often overrode his boss's wishes (Attorney General).''.
Jan. 1st 2022 : '' But, no time for anyone to sit on their laurels and, if the Zodiac is still alive, must know that they are running out of time. I believe that the Seattle Times March 25th 2021 personal ad. is the Zodiac, and the last vestiges of his now wafer-thin bravado.''.

Jan. 2nd 2022 : '' That ''wikipedia'' is very informative. Apparently, the day after dismissing James Comey, Mr Trump met with the Russian Foreign Secretary, to facilitate business talks. Mr Trump's opener : ''I just fired my FBI Director - he's crazy, a complete nut-job.''.''.

Jan. 2nd 2022 : '' Now, bearing in mind the recent disclosure that it was Judge Raymond Sherwin who released BPP's Eldridge Cleaver on bail, and that BPP student leader Bunchy Carter was Cleaver's protege, one can see why the FBI might be in denial of the real Z340 solution. ''.
Jan. 2nd 2022 : '' And yet, the Dec. 11th date of their 2020 Tweet indicates the FBI's attempt to bait Z, with the codes on the ''I knew'' letter being unlocked by the real Z340 cipher keys. All the FBI are doing, is delaying derision poured on themselves.''.
Jan. 2nd 2022 : '' But naturally - the cynical side to the FBI is bared also ? That being, that the FBI are taking a ''punt'' that either the Zodiac is never brought to justice, or that a plea deal will buy his silence on an explanation for any of their extortion mess-ups.''.
Jan. 2nd 2022 : '' At least good to know that the Crown Office didn't seek out the FBI, with their opinion on the Z340 real solution, in July 2017 and, more than likely went with cipher specialists NSA/GCHQ. Only so much the FBI can manage on their tangled web of deceit ? ''.
Jan. 2nd 2022 : '' Indeed, it can be difficult to assess an organization, such as the FBI who, are found to be in breach of the interests of National Security; turning down Richard Nixon's job application, and giving both Terry Poyser and Kevin Fagan a sexual thrill.''.

Jan. 3rd 2022 : '' Yes, ''Fakery''; ''Trickery'' and ''Reality TV''. These are the tools of the trade that the FBI have decided to employ, in a new age of survival, post-Comey, using the skills of Disney & Hearst Corps. Ways & means to secure that 10 Billion annual budget.''.
Jan. 3rd 2022 : '' What did everyone do, including the families of Z's victims, to deserve this from the FBI, and their succession of ''young faced'' Directors ? Could be that they were badly bullied at school, and determined to get their own back - on everyone.''.
Jan. 3rd 2022 : '' One shouldn't demean bullying, but the likelihood is that very few of us ''weren't'' bullied. Some chose to allow it to haunt them - probably in the case of Paul Avery, at the hands of ALA. That Dan Olson must be near retirement - but still looks 16.''.
Jan. 3rd 2022 : '' Previously kept under wraps, but looking like Allen & Avery attended the same Elementary School, same class, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Did the SF Chronicle pay Don Cheney to out ALA to the law ? Did the SF Chronicle knowingly assist the FBI over the Pines Card fiasco ? ''.
Jan. 3rd 2022 : '' I doubt that Mr Olson is going to escape ''The private citizens cipher solve'' that never was. To think, Mr Olson goes all the way back to distinguished service, under Robert Mueller. Not so difficult to see how Mr Mueller looked so ill, after his report.''.
Jan. 3rd 2022 : '' Whoever played with a straight bat on Z investigations ? Very few in number. It seems to me that Lyndon Lafferty and Don Peterson are the only two that I can think of. Peterson becoming stupidly side-lined into believing that Joseph Bates might be Z.''.
Jan. 3rd 2022 : '' A wholly ridiculous notion (Joseph Bates), but Peterson probably a gullible hoax victim of Z. And Lafferty, a shining beacon of honesty - but just couldn't make the adjustment to realize that William Grant was being persecuted by his biological son - Z.''.
Jan. 3rd 2022 : '' ''Dave Peterson'' as a correction - my apologies to his family. Indeed, a fair few though, that have played by foul means, usually to paper over the cracks of their shallow and inadequate research - with one or two of those, simply becoming dishonest and morally corrupt.''.
Jan. 3rd 2022 : '' And PD's that played with a straight bat, and well ? Benicia and San Jose. The police reports on LHR are of professional quality, second to none. Old school detective work unrivalled. Sadly, Benicia were too small, and became overwhelmed on case clout.''.
Jan. 3rd 2022 : '' And San Jose PD who, did everything possible in support, and when they found themselves '' under Z fire'', such as the Nov. 21st 1969 San Jose Letter. Sterling from them on Karl Werner's 3 victims, for which the Zodiac tried to claim as his own.''.

Jan. 4th 2022 : '' The major ''Blips'' in the case have been, basically, three in number. Firstly, Napa's lack of forethought to inform the CA DOJ about correspondences related to the Bates murder, having learned of this from Riverside, shortly after Lake Berryessa, in October 1969.''.
Jan. 4th 2022 : '' And naturally, questions will always remain, why Riverside had simply handed these murder-related correspondences over to the US Postal Services Fraud Department where, the letters had languished, until Paul Avery's (fed ?) expose in November 1970.''.
Jan. 4th 2022 : '' Secondly, the exposure (fully, in July 1978) of SFPD's Dave Toschi, responsible for fan mail to himself. Not only damaging PR ramifications for the CA DOJ, but probably mortally wounding the Paul Stine murder, as a case to be won, under its own merits.''.
Jan. 4th 2022 : '' And thirdly, Vallejo PD's bungled surveillance operation carried out on William Joseph Grant. The ultimate consequence of which, was for law enforcement to lose a police harassment suit to Grant (1973), and with it Grant's suspect status became illegal.''.
Jan. 4th 2022 : '' Lyndon Lafferty documents the fall-out of this, for both Vallejo and Benicia (blameless), with case files ordered to be destroyed or confiscated by the CA DOJ. In effect, Vallejo and Benicia lost their investigative remit from CA DOJ, for good.''.
Jan. 4th 2022 : '' A shocking surprise for CA DOJ, three years later when, they found that Vallejo had compiled an extensive report (Husted), with its central theme being the inferred guilt of illegal suspect William Grant. Investigative ''game'' well and truly over for Vallejo.''.
Jan. 4th 2022 : '' So, one can understand the Benicia Herald's surprise, in May 2018, on hearing that Detective Terry Poyser, from neighbouring Vallejo, was claiming a Vallejo PD involvement in the case, once again, with ''2 envelopes & a secret Lab.''. Oh dear, oh dear.''.
Jan. 4th 2022 : '' Sadly, the Benicia Herald's daily readership is a little over 3,000/day, compared to the rest of the Bay area, of about 800,000/day. And news of Poyser's claim, first made by the Sacramento Bee, had already gone global. A rat at play ? Called the FBI.''.
Jan. 4th 2022 : '' Although coming in the wake of the arrest of GSK, one could almost be forgiven for noting that ''2 envelopes & a secret lab.'' came within a week of the 1st anniversary of James Comey's dismissal. A wounded FBI giving CA DOJ ''the bird'' ? Could be.''.

Jan. 4th 2022 : '' ....and, despite the Home Office wishing to suppress this information, would have felt duty-bound to inform Comey's bosses at the US DOJ, and Z-case's legal custodians, the CA DOJ. The ultimate consequence being that it contributed to Comey's dismissal.''.

Jan. 4th 2022 : '' It's always possible that the FBI have patched up their differences with DOJ's, but the recent inference of doubt placed upon the Z-authenticity of the 3 April 1967 Bates-related letters, suggests that they are still up to their Z-case meddling tricks.''.
Jan. 4th 2022 : '' And, yet again, through a second party - this time Riverside who, took the window of opportunity to whine about, in effect, the CA DOJ's unwillingness to act on Riverside's investigation conclusions in the murder of Cheri Jo.''.
Jan. 4th 2022 : '' One would have thought that Riverside would understand that the CA DOJ don't necessarily disagree with Riverside's conclusions. It's just that Riverside simply haven't presented enough, to go with a prosecution that can succeed, with confidence.''.
Jan. 4th 2022 : '' The ever watchful FBI sees any opportunity to slip in, or use another party, to gain an advantage in the Z case, from a perceived position of disadvantage, particularly in the wake of Comey's dismissal. In effect, to dilute their own real Z case mess-ups.''.
Jan. 4th 2022 : '' And to think, the FBI are playing out this shameful and fraudulent malarkey, at tax-payers expense, with never in a million years having real consideration for the families of Z's victims, let alone complete contempt for the general public. Just themselves.''.

Jan. 5th 2022 : '' Simply ''wooden'' and unbending in the FBI's whole approach. As will eventually become apparent to everyone, the Zodiac was extorting Senator Edward Kennedy on a regular basis, 1968-1974, with the Chappaquiddick scandal not happening until July 1969.''.
Jan. 5th 2022 : '' And, from evidence in the FBI Files, the Rev Billy Graham, a regular extortion victim of the Zodiac, for the following 40 years (!) following Z's Bay area reign of terror. Graham who advocated Abortion, and Kennedy who abandoned a woman in her hour of need.''.
Jan. 5th 2022 : '' Graham and Kennedy alone, give away true motive of the Zodiac. But, even if excusing this oversight on the grounds of being ''hindsight'', it is the sheer enormity of the Zodiac as a compulsive extortionist who, should easily have been spotted by the FBI.''.
Jan. 5th 2022 : '' It is well-documented, the nine times that West Yorkshire police interviewed The Yorkshire Ripper, before his eventual arrest. Given the FBI's remit in the Z case which, was largely extortion-related, they could have solved this case from behind aa desk.''.
